The Adventures of Brian and Amy: Random Stop for Trash [Video]

The Random Stop for Trash

Sometimes, it’s not about the destination, but the journey along the way. Check out our fearless leader, Norwex Chief Marketing Officer Amy Cadora, and her trusty sidekick, Brian Dill, on today’s exciting journey.

Where they’re going is not important today. What is important is what they encounter on their trip—and how they react to it!

Just WOW!! This is mind boggling, but so simple! I have 5 kids and my 3 littles love helping out in so many ways. We are going to watch this tomorrow and will be setting some personal goals as a family for helping keep our environment clean. I’m thinking getting out of the vehicle for a few minutes once a week isn’t too much to ask, right?

About every day we, my husband and I or my child care kiddos and I. Anytime we see trash we pick it up. If it’s on trash pick up day, we carry it to the next bin and drop it in. We often carry a bag for beverage cans/ containers, that can be recycled. We have been doing this for several years now and I believe it has made a big difference in our children’s lives, who are now grown, and over the years has mad e a big difference in the families I work with through my in-home child care.

The other day while enjoying 15 minutes outside on my lunch break I took a quick walk to the river…I started picking up cigarette butts, then cans, then wrappers, then found that plastic bag…and filled it full on my break. What a satisfying feeling. And yes. I like the suit. And yes, I pick up trash in my “good” clothes. I have U.P.P. after all!

Excellent. We have done clean a mile for 4H. Randomly, I will pick up trash. If it’s recyclable, I will throw in my recycle bin if I happen to see it and have the means to get it to where I want it.

my Dad is constantly picking up trash he sees wherever he goes! we have alot of people in my community that love to dump their trash, so me and my dad go out walking around the mountains of our property to pick up the trash we can find. but my dad picks up trash everywhere he sees it, and that makes me so proud of him! but hes been that way all his life 🙂

You two are a hoot! Love it! I not only pick up garbage, but I stop to pick weeds. I can’t stand walking by a loner weed, it is just, so out of place 🙂

It’s so gratifying to see so many making such a positive difference not only for your own individual surroundings and the beauty of our Earth as a whole, but also guiding children and grandchildren in the right direction of making a difference too! Well done, Norwex Movement members. Keep up the good work!

My daughters and I are heading out to the beach today and we’re going to be picking up trash while enjoying our day! Thank you Norwex for bringing awareness to so many and encouraging small choices that make a big impact! Such an incredible teaching opportunity for my girls!

Love this! Goal: While out hiking/camping always bring an extra bag to pick up trash! (Or bigger goal: Do it always!)

When my son was in high school (class of 2009,) he would pick up trash in front of the school while waiting for me to come get him. The other kids would tease him and say things like “that’s what the janitor is for,” but he would just keep on with his mission. There was always a lot of trash! It made me very proud!

I hope those are reusable coffee cups in the cup holder! Maybe Norwex should sponsor a section of a highway near the headquarters.

I have never stopped my car to pick up trash like Brian did, but I have picked up trash if it is on the sidewalk or the condo shared floors or garage floor, etc. where I live Recently while babysitting at my daughter someone’s Sunday newspaper had blown all down the community pathway and around the marshy pond while I was out walking the dog so I went back and got another bag (as the poop bag for the dog wasn’t big enough),and picked up as much newspaper out of the marshy bushes and tall grass without falling in the pond. At my age I think next time I will send the grandchildren back for a job like that one. When we all pitch in to help it just makes for a more beautiful environment for all of us to enjoy.

I will stop and pick up trash but I always make sure that I have a envirocloth or body cloth with me to wash my hands with afterwards! Don’t want any nastiness to go from my hands to my steering wheel or anywhere else!

I can honestly say that I have never stopped my car to pick up trash. However, if I am on foot, and come across trash I make an effort. I think it’s awesome that they did this so randomly. How clean would our planet be if more people were this conscientious?!

I think it sets a good example for others. A person may not always have the ability to follow the same pattern but if each do a part it can make a big difference. Some may even become conscience of littering.

When I go for a walk, I very rarely do not take a garbage bag with me and pick up trash. Sometimes I wish that I had brought a bigger one! I pick up trash in parking lots. (Keep wipes in my car, just in case I need them.) I may have gone a little OCD while on vacation in the Cayman Islands. We were on the North side this trip and the beach got groomed every day. I took a kitchen size bag and could easily fill that thing in a short distance. Mostly plastic drink bottles and always one shoe or flip-flop. One was a rash of deodorant containers. Go figure! My husband claims I am the only person to go on vacation and pick up trash every day.

That was great Brian. Way to go! We should all stop and clean things up, it would be so easy to pick up at just one stop and make a difference.
Our families policy: take out what you take in, no trash or waste left behind, while camping at the lake, at the park, or road trip etc.

This reminds me of when My grandmother and I would stop and pick up trash on the side of the road in our little community. My kids play Pokemon Go and I think while we are out walking We will start carrying a bag to pick up trash. Thanks for the Idea Norwex! 🙂

My sons are all grown up now, but I was a soccer and baseball mom… and before every game to warm up the team would get there earlier to the game so we could go around and pick up the garbage. 🙂

We live across the street from my daughter’s middle school and both my girls regularly walk the grounds there by the softball fields and practice fields and parking lots picking up trash. They both have done this since before either of them were old enough to go to the school. I routinely pick up trash in parking lots as I walk through them.

Inspired by Brian, I’m going to carry a trash bag (do they make biodegradable ones? Any one know?) in my car and promise to pick up trash where I see it in my travels.

I would love to see everyone in this world pick up trash as they see it. My family adopts a 2 mile stretch of highway that we pick up 3 times a year. I find it amazing in a 2 mile stretch that we pick up anywhere from 2 bags to 10 bags each time. So sad.

We will occasionally tidy up the park when we’re there. It’s so sad to see the lazyness of it, trash on the ground, with a garbage can readily available!

This may have been a better video if they were walking. or riding bicycles and avoided the use of a fuel burning vehicle. Jus’ saying’…
