We don’t realize how much of a mess we make on this planet just by living here. It’s important that we come together to clean things up once in a while to keep this place clean for the generations that will come after us. Not many people think about this, but if you want this planet to be a clean place to live for our kids, then we must do our part to maintain it while we are here.
It’s a big planet, and there are 6 billion of us here, so if we all just do our part we won’t have a problem. The challenge is most people don’t do their part. I was at the beach the other day and watched how some people just tossed trash on the ground when a garbage pail was within 50 feet walking distance.
Most people don’t think that a little candy wrapper or soda can won’t harm anyone, but remember there are billions of us. So if we all have that mindset this place can get messy pretty quickly, and parts of the world have.
A Community Coming Together
Out in the Long Island area this summer there has been a community of people coming together to do a little cleaning up. It’s always good to see people coming together for the same cause, and one that will do so many of us good for years to come.
A large group of the locals from the South Shore of Suffolk County have come together to give the shoreline a face lift. If you’ve never been to the beaches of Long Island you’re missing out. They have some of the most beautiful beaches around. The coastline is amazing, with breath taking views.
There are so many people in that area spending time either down at the beach or on the water boating. Some of the beaches there have had a wash up of garbage and litter. Nothing to where you wouldn’t want to go to the beach to relax, but enough that you could see long term it could become a problem.
These awesome local residents have teamed up for the summer to head to some of the beaches on Saturday mornings during July and August to do a little housekeeping. If I had to pick a place to do some cleanup, the beach would be at the top of my list. Just the feeling of knowing you’re doing something good, but also being at one of the best places on Earth.
They Started A Movement
This group has done an amazing job of picking up trash and keeping the shoreline looking stunning. They even caught the attention of local businesses in the area that wanted to lend a hand within their community as well. Some of the owners and employees of those companies have been coming out to help, as well as donate all types of items and money to make the job easier.
The local bagel shops, coffee shops, hair salons, limo service companies like www.mvlimo.com, pet supply stores, hardware stores and so many other great businesses have chipped in to help out. It’s been a great coming together of the community there. We’ve heard that the community not only feels cleaner, but closer together as well.
