Chicago isn’t doing so well on litter …

It’s good for me to get out of Charlotte now and then. Nice to see different streets. 

OK, maybe it isn’t so good to see some streets here in Chicago, the city of Broad Shoulders. People don’t appear to be shouldering their share of the trash load. The streets are a mess. 


It’s been this way – very slovenly – every time I visit.  I mean, otherwise it’s a great, marvelous town. Incredible restaurants, fun sights to see – and then there are the World Champion Cubs. 

But Chicagoland, based on the ultra-cluttered Division-Ashland-Chicago Ave. loop I just walked, is far from champion-esque in terms of cleanliness. Harris Teeter bags, where art thou? 

About Dave Bradley (260 Articles)
I'm the one behind two totally unrelated blogs; one on 15 years of writing a weekly letter to my kids (plus other recipients), the other on my localized environmental responsibility. I'm a writer by trade and both endeavors are accepted practice for me. As for the letters, my adult children Ellen and Reid may have seen letters as corny at one point, but it's accepted practice for them, too, to find something in their mailbox other than bills and junk mail. Email and texting don't do a lot for me for a lot of different reasons. Snail mail has its place in the communicative world so as long as they keep selling stamps, I'm buying. As for 'Pick Up Your Path' and the environment, I advocate what citizens can do themselves to take a direct hand in their neighborhood environment. But Pick Up Your Path is also a general environmental blog. It may be largely about litter and trash, but both of those are just one element of the total environmental picture.

  1. I’ve had the opportunity to visit San Francisco every few years for several decades. On a recent trip there I was amazed and perplexed at the volume of litter blowing around in the streets. It has really tainted my whole perception of an otherwise beautiful city.
