It’s not unusual for me to find and collect litter and other trash on my walks. Frankly, as my husband will agree, the habit can be a filthy pain in the neck. So it was exceptionally nice to get a tasty reward for participating in a local Earth Day clean up.
Moreover, it was liberating to engage in the task among the company of other like-minded citizens who aren’t afraid to get dirty for the Earth. And something tells me that many of the volunteers I met that day are like me, pitching in to protect the ecosystem every day of the year.
