The first Saturday of each month: Neighborhood Pick Up Your Path Day …

Happy Independence Day to everyone. We have a great nation.

But it’s dirty with trash and litter and junk strewn everywhere on every street and along every sidewalk. It debases our communities.

It’s time we celebrated the U.S.A. in a different – and more frequent – manner.

Herewith, let’s declare the first Saturday of each month to be Neighborhood Pick Up Your Path Day.

It’s a simple way for sidewalk patriots to honor our country. Devote your daily walk, however long or short it may be, to cleaning up your neighborhood. Take a bag with you and pick up what you can. It doesn’t have to be a lot, just enough to make your neighborhood a little cleaner, a little more welcoming. (I’ll promote the first Saturday regularly on blog posts.)

For the calendar-minded, here are some near-term Saturdays through the end of this year that you can mark down right now:

August 5

September 2

October 7

November 4

December 2

Of course, would love to have photos of your trash exploits. You can post them to the Pick Up Your Path Facebook page, too.


About Dave Bradley (264 Articles)
I'm the one behind two totally unrelated blogs; the first on 17 years of writing weekly letters 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 these single pagers 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 and so as long as they keep selling stamps, I'm buying. As for 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.
