Week 21 – The Choice is Yours

March 1, 2009

March 1st through May 31st starts the annual “Great American Cleanup“.  Ben and I believe that keeping our world beautiful should be an annual process, but we applaud the extra efforts to involve others through organized efforts.

If you aren’t the start-your-own-bucket-brigade type, this is the best place to begin.  Organized groups have been formed and anyone can click on their location and find something nearby.  If you don’t find anything in your neck of the woods, you can surely start your own organized effort with their guidance.    It is your choice.

We picked up litter today around a construction area.  The amount of Styrofoam lunch containers and empty beer cans being  strewn about was astounding.  I’m glad our favorite take out restaurants provide recyclable containers, or we wouldn’t be eating from their establishments.  Of course we then choose to dispose of them in the responsible manner. 

The choice is ours…what will you choose?
