I never thought about it until now but we all like a nicely beaten disc and this comes with a virtually unseen pollution.

I detest littering and it never crossed my mind that pieces of our discs are out there on our favorite courses just sitting for all eternity. I wish there was something we could do about this and as many disc golfers are Earth-friendly I think we all can agree. We don't intend to pollute with our disc shavings but it happens, regardless. It would be nice if discs were somehow Green, but I have no idea how that would work.

So anyway, I just wanted to bring this problem to attention. During my last round there was trash everywhere on my favorite course, literally within 50 feet of a trash can in most cases. I absolutely cannot stand litter and now I have to disc knowing that little pieces of my discs are going to be stuck in nature forever
