Make Monday Matter...pick up litter

Posted by Christina // 2 Replies

Tim and I have been hiking on weekends lately, and one of our new favorite things to do is bring a little plastic bag and pick up as much trash as we possibly can.

It all started when Tim picked up one little bottle, now we have started making a game to see who can pick up the most “treasure”.  Today I want to translate our little beautification process to everyday life. pick-up-some-liter-to-make-monday-matter You know how we love our animals, so I find it disturbing that nearly 300 species die from ingesting or getting entangled in marine debris annually.  What a shame, think of the ducks.

If every single person picked up just one piece of litter today, there would be over 3 million fewer pieces of litter.  If everyone picked up 10 pieces, there would be 3 billion fewer pieces.  Even though picking up just one piece seems like it could never make an impact, it could be saving a little life while improving your community.

Confession time:  Are you a litter bug?
