Week 29 – Just a drop in the bucket

April 26, 2009

Perhaps it’s the nearly eight months of tidying up others litter, or maybe it’s the incredibly trashy areas we attack with our tiny buckets. Regardless of the reason, I find myself frustrated tonight with the tiny dent we put in an especially gross part of Fife, WA near my workplace.img_0330

Lori and I literally filled our buckets in less than two minutes. We enjoyed a brief bit of sunshine and stretched our legs after a long drive today but didn’t leave with a sense of accomplishment. Without a doubt, we could have easily filled fifteen buckets each in an amazingly short amount of time.

Every piece of litter we pick up is a success but we need your help, won’t you please (even if it’s just once) fill a bucket or a bag in your neighborhood? I promise you that you can find an especially dirty spot and complete the task within five minutes.

If you choose to accept this mission, we thank you, the Earth thanks you, and passersby will thank you.

Oh yeah, Happy Belated Earth Day.
