OK so was out walking with some neighbors the other day, and I looked liked such a a fool. Why you might ask, no not because I can't walk, although I do struggle with that act sometimes. Here is the reason why. They were picking up pieces of trash and I was not. So here it is, another wonderfully simple and brilliant idea, and I am so embarrassed that I don't do it more, so don't think that I am wagging my finger at anyone other than myself, if you are out walking, pick up and throw away (or better yet try to recycle) whatever you might find.Now let me be clear I am not asking people to jump out of moving cars or other extreme actions if they see a gum wrapper on the side of the road. And I am not asking you to pick up dangerous or gross looking things that you may be lucky enough to find. What I am asking, is if you take your dog for a walk, or if you run, or if you are walking from the shop to your car (OK I will stop with all the different scenarios now) and you see trash, pick it up. I mean I get that we drive everywhere now, but there have to be a few times when we are not in our cars. I think I find myself picking up most of the trash that I do find in my own garden, but again if I can expand this even more, and if I can get some help, I think it would be a huge help. I mean come on, it is so easy. Just think of it as your community service sentence without having to wear an orange vest, although you can if you want.
Ahhhhh there are just so many ways we can help without really do much of anything. I think you will find that I like easy. So as I said at the start, I know there are a lot of people doing this already, but lets get even more people. See I don't want much. Just want people to be aware and care enough, so that all these little acts environmental kindness turn into big acts of environmental restoration.
Thanks to all.
