A litterer was taught a valuable life lesson when a toddler returned to the him the bottle he threw out of his car.
According to LAD Bible, a short video clip was shared online where a one-year-old boy is seen walking on the streets in the city of Jining in eastern China’s Shandong Province.
At that point of time, someone from a parked car throws an empty bottle out of the window. Noticing the bottle on the floor, the toddler walks over to it, picks it up and hands it back to the litterer through the window.
The boy’s mother told Daily Mail that the son most probably thought the litterer had dropped the bottle by accident and was just trying to be helpful, but I’m sure we’d all like to think that the boy was teaching him to be kind to the environment.
The boy’s mother said she often likes to film her son when they go out for their daily walks and managed to capture the moment.
“That day, he probably thought the bottle had fallen from the car by accident. He is a very uncomplicated child. If he sees other people drop stuff, he always helps to pick up,” she said.
“He is only one year and three months old and probably doesn’t have a strong sense of environmental protection, but his action taught the driver a lesson.”
The mother said that once the boy had handed the bottle back, he ran back to her while the person in the car did not respond and simply closed the window.
Here’s the full video:
I’m sure we all can learn a thing on two for this precious little one, and hopefully that litterer knows better than to throw things on the sidewalk again.
