Pick Up 10 Pieces of Trash on Tuesdays

Pick Up 10 Pieces of Trash on Tuesdays

I’ve been getting into the habit lately of taking walks around the neighborhood at lunchtime. There’s a great tree-lined path that goes from our office back to the Coppell Nature Park and it’s about 3 miles round trip. The other day it was pretty windy and I noticed a piece of garbage blowing my way, I thought, “ I should let it go, it’s just once piece of trash.” But then I started to think about if everyone picked up just one piece of trash, what an impact that would have on our communities and world! So I picked up that trash, and a few other pieces and was feeling inspired to tell others about this.

There’s also a local organization that is spreading the word about reducing litter in the Dallas area called reverselitter.com. They are simply asking people to pick up 10 pieces of trash every Tuesday.

“If for just one year, 5,000 people chunk 10 pieces of litter a week into the trash or recycling bin, the Metroplex will reduce litter by 2.6 million pieces.”

Just imagine the impact on your local community if you got just a few neighbors, family members or your co-workers involved!

We have trash cans in our neighborhood clubhouse parking lot. I constantly see trash left in the parking lot and on the trails. How hard is it to just throw it away, especially since there are trash cans all over that area??!! I will sometimes pick it up and throw it away but if it looks like it could have some kind of contaminate in it, I don’t feel comfortable picking it up. I know there was a thing going around where kids would put some kind of explosive stuff in bottles and when you picked it up, it explodes on you. I’m not willing to put myself at risk for that. But I do like to use my doggie bags to gather up what I can when I’m out walking, especially when there is a trash can around.

This is a great idea! I like does the Geocache “Cache in, Trash out” but this takes it beyond playtime! <3
