Setting Boundaries

Setting boundaries –

We are shocked. You can even still see them, the car tracks that lead to the unloading point. In the middle of the recreational forest.

On the way during our morning walk in the forest – wild garlic blooms to the left and right – we pass a mountain of garbage. The path is intended for walkers, joggers and cyclists and is beautifully landscaped. It is normally not accessible to motorists through a barrier.

Now we know why.

Because of the construction work for the renaturation of the Nidda Creek near the mouth of the Main River and the necessary access for trucks, the barrier is open.

What we see here leaves us speechless.

How often do we hear from politicians that we have to respect the responsible citizen and not develop so many regulations?

But here it only seems to work if boundaries are set.

What remains for us to do –
In Frankfurt, you can report this to a municipal authority, which will ensure the removal of illegal waste dumping. Take a photo and a print screen from Google Maps that shows where this is located and then upload the whole thing.

This event made us pensive and contemplative. We don’t need to worry about the rainforests in distant countries as long as we don’t get the topic of sustainability baked in its elementary facets at home on our own doorstep.

➡️ Setting boundaries or appealing to reason – what do you think should be the path?
