    How does the act of picking up litter connect you more to your community?

    How does the act of picking up litter connect you more to your community?

    We have this small lot near our house which everyone from our neighborhood walks through to get to the grocery store. Rubbish regularly blows in from the adjoining parking lot and is always in need of picking up. Planning on picking up at least 3 pieces of trash here or along the trail near our house...safely of course.

    A little under a week away until we get started! Suspect it will be a little more challenging this year with all of us working from home in the time of COVID. It's been disappointing to see some of the plastic free initiatives give way in the name of public safety. Prohibiting bringing your own containers/bags, paper bags are not at the store anymore, and much of the bulk buying has been removed. Doesn't mean that we'll be in this state forever though and there's still a lot out there you can learn and do. Part of the fun in this challenge is to encourage others and help each other out as they're evaluating alternatives to reduce single use plastic. 

    Recommend watching the how-to video on your dashboard - it explains how to go about accumulating points. You can log-in now, watch the video, and then start reviewing the actions you'd like to participate in. For those you already do, you can check those off for one point each.

    As an added bonus to learning great things you can do for the planet - we have a few prizes lined up. I'll provide more details next week.

    Feel free to invite family to join our team or your friends to create their own team or compete separately. You get points for this too.

    As a recap from those who participated last year: 

    Total points: 6,123
    Team-members: 26
    Place: 69th out of 776 teams
    Place in our state of Washington: 2nd!
