I strapped on the pedometer again and walked around a neighbourhood trail. I took a green garbage bag inside a plastic trash can which bungee-d it to a collapsable dolley.
I wear gardening gloves, a brimmed hat and good footwear! I AM the Litter-Picker-Upper!
My steps added up to 1,037 and I was only out on the trail for 25 minutes or so. But, I was able to completely fill (stuff, pushed down, cram) that plastic trash bin. I estimate it as a 20 gallon can.
I got out in the sunshine to do some activity and do a little neighbourly act. Luckily I returned home just before there was trash pick up today!
I am often embarrassed by my untidy surroundings. That litter will start accumulating tomorrow and the next day... it is a disgusting, irresponsible habit. I sometimes feel as if I am one against 200 others.
I am still enjoying my supper on a luncheon plate for portion control too.
