If you like getting outside and doing good for the planet at the same time, how about picking up litter in your neighborhood?. We really don’t see what’s on the ground driving by, but looking down on a stroll, it’s evident that cigarette butts (not biodegradable), plastic wrappers and drink containers have found their way into the natural landscape, be it by flying out of a garbage or recycling truck, getting carelessly tossed or unknowingly parting from their owner.
To make your efforts easier, Bainbridge Island Zero Waste will lend you a grabber for as long as you’d like to use it. Just email us to request one. Also, consider using the litterati app if you want to take photos of what you pick up. They sometimes even rally their users to provide real-time data to support legislation!
