Many people think that China is a dirty place, and although many people do threw their waste everywhere, in some ways it is cleaner than the USA. Everyday I see many people sweeping or picking up the streets. There are also people that go through the trash for plastic, glass or cardboard for recycling. Some people go through the city collecting old computers and other things from peoples homes for recycling. They even recycle concrete. The Chinese may litter the streets but their homes are spotless on the inside. They also are very clean people when it comes to their hygiene. Western people might find it difficult to use a hole in the ground for a tiolet but the Chinese don't understand why someone would want to sit on a tiolet seat that other people have sat on, passing on germs. They are not perfect, but who is? We could all learn something from each other.
