|This photo may look dirty, icky and grey, but it was a welcome spring sight to me.|
|I could not get in my car and drive away without picking up these bottles.|
I grabbed the bag and started picking up plastic bottles, and noticed more and more plastic. I just keep picking it up while trying to avoid soiling my frizzy long sleeve silky shirt. I knew the plastic I was picking up was just a drop in the bucket. I told myself to pick up ten pieces of the most non-compostable litter that I saw. I left a piece of cardboard in the stream. I could have spent all afternoon on this street and I had other things to do, and it wasn't even my neighborhood. I wondered if when I walk my dog if I should pick up plastic. I used to do that but gave it up because I was doing more stopping and pickup up of plastic than walking the dog.
