How many of us pass small and large bits of garbage or recycling when we are walking in our neighborhoods, but, for practical reasons, don’t act on our impulse to be good citizens? Carry a rolled-up plastic bag with you and do a good deed to clean up our community.
In addition, the street storm drains flow directly to the local creeks and rivers. By picking up trash and recyclables, you will be helping the water quality of our local streams.
We got this idea after observing a neighbor do the same, while walking her dog. It was an “aha” moment for us here at aFewSteps.org.
