Today I start a new adventure.
One I really hope that others join me on.
In honor of Earth Day, I pledge to pick up one piece of litter everyday for the next year.
Could be a plastic bag, cigarette butt, straw or whatever is found to be laying around. Of course picking up more than one piece would be even better, but can you imagine if each and every person on this planet picked up one single piece a day? Together we would literally change the world and save lives.
So will you join me? Maybe bring along a few friends to join the challenge. Together we CAN make a difference.
But wait, is it really that big a deal? I mean I walk outside & I see plenty of trash cans & plenty of grass. Is litter really a big deal?
Face it, people are lazy or they just simply don’t even realize they dropped something or the wind blows it out of reach… life happens. The problem lies in the “it isn’t my job or my stuff littering, so I don’t need to worry about it” attitude. You are right in that it may not be anything you caused or created, but we are all living together. So be kind and help out by tossing those left behind items where they belong.
The blame game doesn’t get us anywhere, but action will.
This is a simple act that absolutely anyone who shares life on this planet can easily do. Just takes a few seconds and doesn’t cost a single cent. All it takes is motivation and dedication to make where you live a bit better. Increase the property value of Earth and feel great while doing it.
So can you join me? In honor of our beautiful planet.
Let’s clean it up.
As they say, this is the only home we have.
