I Like the Idea But….

I like this idea from a student, who wrote this letter to the Modesto Bee. I tried picking up some plastic water bottles on the pavement at the local recycling center this week, and my hand got oily. I’m a germaphobe. What can I do to solve this problem?

Throw away the litter you see

I am so sick of walking to school and having trash all over — cigarettes and bits and pieces of trash. We should stop and clean it up. This should be a better town and we can do it if we help. Who wants to live in a pig sty?

It’s killing the planet. People need to get their acts together. Next time you see trash, pick it up and throw it responsibly in a trash can.

    Based on your interest in Cool Globes and global warming (in a post I can’t seem to locate now), I though you might also like to know the exhibit will be auctioned tonight, October 5, to raise funds for the Chicago Conservation Corp Clubs, which provide environmental education opportunities for Chicago’s youth.

    Attendees will include Al Franken, politician and comedian; Wendy Abrams, founder; Bears QB Kyle Orton; Sadhu Johnston, chief environmental officer, Mayor Richard M. Daley, etc.

    Media availability starts at 5:30, silent auction begins at 6:00, and is followed by a 7:30 auction program at the Auditorium Theatre, 50 East Congress Parkway in Chicago.

    I just thought this might be an even that you’d be interested in blogging about. Thanks for your time!
