At about noon today, the four of us were headed back home after a quick visit to downtown Mobile. About a mile from our campground, I suggested we stop and pick up trash. The girls thought that was a good idea so we pulled over at Old Military Road and Barron Place to start cleaning up.
We noticed a good amount of trash on the side of the road, (which is what spurred the idea), but there was more than we had expected (beer cans, liquor bottles, cigarette containers, fast food wrappers, and a whole lot of other gross stuff).
I found a cardboard box to put the trash in and it wasn't long before we had filled it to the brim.
Our girls enjoyed running around searching for trash and Stephanie & I felt great about how much better the side of the road looked.
As people drove by, we could see them look curiously at us. Hopefully, if more garbage accumulates there in the future, they will remember us and pull over for 15 minutes to keep their neighborhood clean and beautiful.
Have you ever participated in a community clean-up day? Or just stopped on the side of the road to pick up garbage?
