Do you or would you pick up litter even if you did not do it?

I have been walking for the past 2 wks. and have noticed plastic water bottles here and there and some paper I was going to pick it up but I would need to have a bag with me anyway the grass needed to be cut and thought they will pick it up (surely)...WRONG! Omg I can not believe they just ran over it and some got shredded all over the place (this is a school track). I felt so bad I wish I would have picked the trash up somehow :(

  • I carry medical gloves and a plastic grocery bag and clean it up.....it's something that you can do with your kids as a community service project....when I take my son to the local park we always start off by picking up at least a bag's worth of trash as a way of doing our part & giving back.

  • I probably wouldn't if I was on a walk not cause I don't want to be nice lol, but because honestly I wouldn't think about it. I do however pick litter up on the devil strip, across from our house and in the neighbors yard even though we don't do it. My mom use to pick up litter all the time on our street when we were kids.
