I was back out picking up trash along the river yesterday. First trash walk for 2018. Snow is melting. Weather is approaching 50 degrees. Technically it's spring but that means nothing in Minnesota. There will certainly be more snow. Recently, my brother-in-law Bob showed me a Facebook article about folks in Sweden who jog and pick up trash. They call it plogging. https://mashable.com/2018/02/13/plogging-fitness-trend/#9YwcPXibUmqx I'm only half Swedish and I don't jog. I really only meander and contemplate life while I pick up trash. I still get all the benefits with walking, reaching, bending, and lifting. I've got a few aches today.
In addition to the usual single serving chip bags, candy wrappers, cans and bottles, there was a ton of plastic sheeting material from pallets and large chunks of Styrofoam that blows in from all the industrial businesses that are located across the road. It would be great if some of those employees had an opportunity to leave work a little early and stop by the park to clean up.
