"If there’s a world here in a hundred years, it’s going to be saved by tens of millions of little things. The powers-that-be can break up any big thing they want. They can corrupt it or co-opt it from the inside, or they can attack it from the outside. But what are they going to do about 10 million little things? They break up two of them, and three more like them spring up!"
- Pete Seeger, in YES! Magazine

Pick up Trash - again - and Recycle

The project:
Pick up trash in the gutter; deliver a load of recyclable glass, plastic and aluminum to the recycling center; deliver a coat, books, toys and other kid clothes to the shelter thrift store.

30 minutes all together

Why bother?
The trash was in the gutter right by the van when I parked. It's not that tough to pick it up. I recycle because it's good for our children, and their children, and their grandchildren. I delivered goods to the shelter store because we're finished with them and I don't see just trashing good stuff someone else can use.

Worth it?
