Bags of garbage

The photos of bags of garbage on this blog do not magically appear. I fill the garbage bag up in 15 min. to an hour and take the bag to be picked up by the city. Most garbage comes from little bits everywhere that add up to one large bag when collected into a group.

Hi Mark,

Enjoying your blog great work on it and what you are doing for the environment. Thank you.

I have been picking up litter around the neighborhood since May and have started to involve children now as they seem to have more concern about it than adult - the goal is that they learn what happens to the litter and the damage it can do if not cleaned up, will rub off on the adults in their lives. I have learned this through wondering about it myself and an EdX MOOC via Cornell University "Civic Ecology:Reclaiming Broken Places" I am taking right now (will be sharing your Blog as part of my final project)

I did my first shoreline cleanup a few days ago with a small group as part of the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup and intend to continue to do it. It was motivating to work with like minded folks and motivating to keep doing it by myself.

Hi Cathern2610
I am sorry I did not reply sooner, but I was not informed of the comment, so I could not respond until now.

Congratulations on doing a shoreline cleanup. I hope in the future we will not have to cleanups anymore, because the garbage is not put into the water in the first place.

I don't know what my blog can contribute to your school/University project, but that's great!
