Talking Trash

 Tuesdays for Trash is an account I follow on Instagram; not that I limit my trash picking to Tuesdays only.  It's definitely an almost daily occurrence.  I easily find plastic bags blowing around so just grab one and start filling it up.  The hashtag #plalking stands for "picking up litter while walking".

That picture bottom left is a food wrapper that has started to disintegrate into so many tiny little pieces.

Last month, I had some fun with some of the packaging I found on the ground.
The trash was speaking to me and had a message to share.
Earth Day is every day! (Not just annually on April 22nd.)
Wishing you a lovely day!

Well done for litter picking most days, I found so much more litter was being dropped during lockdown, I'm not sure why? xx

All of those plastic bottles make me cringe. They seem to be taking over the planet.
I really admire you for taking it upon yourself to pick up after others. It seems no matter where we live in the world there are people who see no problem with littering. Glad your sense of humor is intact :).

I admire you so much for picking up the litter in your area. Your photos are brilliant and should be shared everywhere! Love your little collage of photos. Purple/lavender are my favorite color so I especially love these. I hope your day is wonderful my dear Tammy.
Blessings and hugs,
Betsy

I never understood why so many throw their trash on the ground-disgusting

Love how you photoshopped the trash.

In the late spring, summer and fall it is easy to overlook how much trash there is along the side of the roads. Come winter when all the foliage is gone, oh my golly, SO.MUCH.TRASH!

I pick up, too! In fact, recently a man said to me as I picked up a bit of trash--I watched a bunch of people just walk right by that without a glance! Yeah, I notice litter. I like the way you played with the words! Good job!

You are a doer while so many are armchair activists. I wonder if others see you picking up the trash are inspired to do so as well.

All the best, Tammy. Trying to get back into this blogging world that I love so much!

It's quite sickening to see how much litter there is lying about, it's disposable masks that really make my stomach turn, what are they thinking! you are doing a great job Tammy. I have just got back from my walk and I didn't see one piece of litter on my 3 mile circular route, that must be a first. Have a lovely day.

I walk around out blocks 3 times a week. I see some trash, but not much. Thank goodness. But people do leave they paper face masks everywhere....so sad.

You and I have had this trash-y conversation too many times already. "nuff said!
