A challenge to help reduce our environmental footprint

Just sitting around thinking of something I could do to help our green footprint, so I picked up a garbage bag and picked up litter along Westview Drive up to Applewood.

There are so many paper cups, I don’t understand how people can be so ignorant and throw things out on the street instead of taking them home to their garbage cans. I will continue to pick up  stuff on my regular walks and challenge other walkers to do the same.

Another thought crossed my mind. Why not have our garbage picked up once every two weeks instead of every week? This would cut down on pollution from the trucks etc. Let’s give it a try and see how it works – if it doesn’t we can go back to once a week.
