    On this final day of the Ecochallenge I went on my last trash walk around my neighborhood. I found a neighbor’s month-old newspaper in its bag under a bush, so I used it to collect pieces of trash. I used my paper bag to store sweet potatoes instead.

    I went for another neighborhood trash walk today. Lo & behold, I found another unused doggie waste bag on my route - what a funny coincidence!

    I went for another neighborhood walk today & found an unused dog waste bag. I used it to collect the little bits of trash along my route.

    I got the opportunity to walk around my neighborhood today so I picked up some trash. The first item was a plastic newspaper bag so I used it as my collection bag instead of the paper bag I brought along.

    My boyfriend & I worked at decluttering the garage today. He rediscovered many treasures, such as old family photos & mementos from past events. I uncovered more dead & obsolete electronics that someone else had unloaded on me a few years ago. We got a lot accomplished but there's more decluttering to be done another day.

    I've been decluttering my house & have an old TV set, flip-type cell phone, a few other devices & a bunch of busted charging cables that I want to get rid of. I found a recycling company nearby that accepts these items, and all I have to do is drop them off! YAY!

    It's pouring rain today, so no neighborhood walk or nature preserve hike this evening - another opportunity lost for picking up trash.

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

    The act of picking up litter connects me more to my community because it lets me set an example for my neighbors.

    I like to buy the reduced produce at my local market - blemished fruits & veggies that would otherwise be thrown out. Unfortunately, the market puts the fruit on styrofoam trays & wraps them up with plastic.  }:-P

    I missed an opportunity to pick up trash in my favorite local nature preserve the other day. I went for a hike with my boyfriend & forgot to bring a paper bag. The only thing I picked up were ticks (not intentionally)! When I go back later in the week I'll hit those spots where I remember seeing trash on the ground.
