You can’t turn around without a week or a month devoted to this or that subject. Like National Headache Month (June) or National Carpet Cleaning Month and Mathematics Awareness Month. Both of these heavyweights are observed April. What? You didn’t know this?
Pick Up Your Path is jumping – or at least walking – onto the notoriety bandwagon.
Through the power vested in me, I hereby declare the first and third Saturday of each month as Pick Up Your Path Day. Here’s the caveat: You only have to pick up one item.
Sure, I’d like you to take a bag (knowing full well you’d fill it) but let’s take this one step at a time. Pick up that Coke or Pepsi bottle, or that Coors of Bud Light can, or that McDonalds or Burger King polystyrene cup. One thing, once per each of these two Saturdays. It’s hardly an onerous request – but every item counts. My suggestion is focus on a non-degradable junk made of plastic or polystyrene, but snatching paper is good, too.
You can earn bonus points if you pick up more than one piece of junk. You’ll be surprised how satisfying the simple act of picking up one piece of junk will be.
