Don't Be a Litterbug!

You must be the change you wish to see in the world. - Mohandas Gandhi

Every night, after I put Boo Jr to bed, I take my dog, Sofie, for a walk. We usually walk the same route every time. We live in a pretty big housing development that has a network of walking trails. We do our walk along a path that parallels one of the main thru-fares. It always disgusted me to see all of the litter on the side of the road and thrown into the woods. In the back of my mind I would think to myself, "This looks like shit. Someone should pick this crap up." Maybe a month or so ago, I came across this quote above, and it inspired me to be that change. So for the past month, I've been picking up garbage from the road that can be recycled (soda bottles, beer cans, etc) and putting them in my recycling bins at home. Maybe I'll eventually get one of those garbage-picker-upper-thing-a-ma-bobbies and pick up the trash as well.
