picking up trash


I pick up trash when I walk.

Some time ago, I read that the ocean is downhill from everywhere.

Well, yes. Yes, it is.

So I pick up trash when I walk.

Especially plastic. Because our oceans are too, too full of plastic.

I hate picking up after people. But it's not the slobs who trash the planet who suffer directly as a result of their rotten behavior.

It's the sea turtles who suffer (as one example). So ... I pick up trash when I walk.

Picking up trash is 95% no fun at all.

Some people do thank me for it. Even better, some people say they will pick it up, too. Best of all, a very few people actually pick something up and put it in the bag I'm carrying.

And once in a while, I find something keep-worthy.

I LOVE that button!

Me too. :-) It's not a button any more -- it's lost the back part with the pin on it.

But yes. That was the first thing I found that I knew I was keeping.
