This past Sunday, Anne and I walked around a few streets in our great neighborhood, New Chauncey. On this particular occasion, we decided to bring some gloves and a bucket to pick up the litter, debris, and other waste around our common, public areas.
Here is the result of a nice, 30-minute leisurely stroll:
We would like to make this a standing activity in the neighborhood. Grab a bucket, some gardening gloves, and a keen eye on your next walk. Look for plastic bags, cigarette butts, and other items that cloud the beauty of our landscaping, parks, and passageways.
Knock on some doors. Ask if your neighbors want to go for a walk and a chat. Grab a cup of coffee after. Maybe some tea.
Think of it as a neighborly Clean Sweep every week. The day doesn’t matter, and the effort will be celebrated.
Share your pictures of the items you find on our streets.
