A Piece of Trash

Remember… it starts with just one idea.

I like to go on walks. I find walks to be little “energy boosters” to start the day or to get reenergized to take on the tasks during the day.  On these walks though, I always see so much trash laying around. I don’t know about you, but seeing how much people litter just really bothers me. I want my city to be in the best possible shape and when I see that some people just don’t care what their own city looks frankly, it just worries me. I love my city.

So I had an idea…

I decided that during my walks I would pick up just one piece of trash. It probably takes me a total of 2 seconds to bend over and pick up the piece of trash. It reminds me that, yes it’s not a huge difference, but everything has to start somewhere. By picking up a single piece of trash, I believe that I’ve made a difference. If I want my city to stand out, in the way I want it too, I have to do my part. By picking up a piece of trash, no I haven’t made a huge impact, but I did something.

Could you imagine if everyone, in every city around the world, just picked up one piece of trash when they went out on a walk ? There’s an interesting thing to think about…

If you’re reading this and have a similar problem in your city, just think, by picking up at least one piece of trash when you go on a walk, you too, can make a difference.
