Do you love your town? Does it make you a little sad when you look around and see that other people have littered carelessly? Just pick up one piece of trash every day and you will make a difference in your community. Maybe others will see you do it and they will start doing it too!
I started doing this a few weeks ago and now I pick up about 10 pieces of trash every time I walk my son to school. It's really starting to make a difference. The walk gets more beautiful every day!

Start a load of laundry, then grab an empty laundry basket, set a timer, and go from room to room and pick up anything in each room that doesn't belong there. Make one circuit to pick-up and one circuit to deliver, emptying the basket. If you noticed trash while doing Pick-Up, set the timer again and empty and pick-up all the trash.
When you are done you'll have a feeling of accomplishment from picking up and rebooting the laundry.
