Kindness: Pick Up Your Trash!

Kindness- Pick Up Your Trash

As part of my New Year’s Resolutions, I’m doing my best to be a more kind person and help out the world around me more. One thing I’ve been wanting to do for a long time is help clean up my neighborhood. So, I finally did!

I live in a really nice and clean area but there are some “hot spots” near a busy road. I’m pretty sure a lot of people that are just passing through to get to a main road have been throwing trash out of their windows and onto the grass surrounding my area… Disgusting! I absolutely hate litter. So, I went to those hot spots and picked up trash. I completely forgot to add it to the footage for The Rebecca & Chris Show since it was on my phone so I’ll add it to the footage I’ll be sharing this weekend.

The picture above was before I got started. I was able to fill up that bag about 75% in half an hour. A lot of the items I found involved cigarettes , beer, gum, water bottles, and things like that.

I made sure not to wear makeup while doing this because I was worried that I would trap germs on my face and I showered right after! I am still a girly-girl after all.

If you have any suggestions for things I can do to help out the world, let me know on my Facebook or Twitter. I would love more ideas.  Are you adding more Kindness to your 2013?
