Yesterday me and my son went for a walk to the pond at the front of our community to see the ducks and we were appalled at all the trash we saw on the way and around the pond, so today when he got in the car after school he asked if we could go down there with plastic bags and clean it up. They are learning about how to keep the environment clean at school and he is taking it to heart and I am truly greatful he is. I have always taught him not to throw things on the ground, because animals will try to eat it and they can not digest it therefore they will die. He is a animal lover like myself so he does not litter and has at times gotten on to adults and other children for doing it. So down we went to the pond and picked up along our walk and around the pond. When we did all we could do for today we had filled up an entire big Tarjay bag full of trash and we had not even gotten to the other side of the pond yet -- ughhh. I don't know why people think it is o.k. to throw stuff out there windows or leave their empty cans and bottles at the pond. It really gets on my nerves, can ya tell.. We even found shirts and gloves in the pond. Here are a few pics. The first two are the before and after on one side of the pond.
These are of the happy ducks being fed and more clean up.
And lastly the big Tarjay bag full of gross yucky trash.
So I wish to challenge my blogging buddies to go out and clean up your community. To my friends who are in two feet of snow or more I won't hold ya to it til spring;) To my friend Suzanne I did the front of the neighborhood, so I will be at your house with a garbage bag ready to help you with the back tomorrow. Bawahahahahaha:)
