Now that much of the snow has melted, have you noticed all the litter along the roadways?
Instead of shaking your head and complaining, try this:
When you head out for a walk, grab a bag and maybe some work gloves and pick up some of that trash along the way. Toss it in a public trash receptacle or your own receptable when you get home. For extra credit recycle those cans and plastic.
Just image the difference if an army of us did this!
So what’s this got to do with business or consumer issues?
A community that cares enough to keep the streetscape clean and well kempt is more attractive to businesses.
More importantly, it makes for a more desirable place to live, one that’s safer for children, animals and the environment. It builds community pride and leads to more efforts to spiff-up the neighborhood.
And imagine, it can all start with picking up some trash.
