One piece of trash a day

    Where I live there seems to be a lot less trash on the streets than there used to be. I am happy about that.
    There is still some trash. What if each of us picked up one piece of trash each day and put it in the garbage. If enough people did this our cities would be a lot cleaner. It is a small thing but it could make a difference. It would also save tax dollars to be used for other things.
    Some people may live in a place where there is no trash on the street, that is great.
    It is not my intention to bash people who do litter, I can't control their actions. I can barely control myself sometimes.
    Comments? Suggestions?

    Thread title looks like Maki's 'to-do' list.

    I like this attitude, and try to live close to it. I pick up trash regularly, especially if there's a trashcan nearby (and I just shake my head) or I'm out hiking.

    Or the title of a new Sergio Leone spaghetti western.

    Also reducing the amount of trash one generates. Reusing bags and containers and such. Like an Ennio Morricone soundtrack, it should be gone back to as much as possible. ;)

    Picking up trash on the weekend has become a bit of a tradition for me,

    Why not? It's an incredibly douchey thing to do. Besides, why would you want to bum this guy out any more than he already is?

    Did you know that actor was actually Greek, and had no native American Heritage at all?

    One of the best quotes from one of the greatest movies ever ... IMO. Classic and fitting.

    I hate littering and it's one of the few things that will get my blood boiling quickly. I've found that returning a lit cigarette to certain drivers is very effective. A nice loud 'YOU MUST HAVE DROPPED THIS" as you toss it back works well. I swept the street in front of my house and my 2 neighbors yesterday as we live on a hill and the sprinkler runoff had washed down some trash. Every little bit helps.

    Now back to posting half Greek half Native Indians.

    Some man just want to watch the world burn.

    I used to care a lot, I still try to but there are times when I think it's so meaningless I toss my cigarette hoping the whole world would catch on fire.

    So be careful who you will return the tossed cigarette to, there are people like me out there.:D
