BEC #010 – A Very Simple Idea About Litter
I’ve found myself inspired by this idea lately… I’ve always picked up the odd bit of litter here and there but lately I’m trying to make more of an effort to do it… well, more.
It’s immediately satisfying.
Not only do you get to look at the area you’ve just made much nicer for yourself and everyone, but it can potentially pick up the spirits of anyone who sees you doing it. And that kind of difference really cannot be overestimated. For someone, it might just mean that they see a higher incidence of people cleaning and caring for the community, and it becomes a part of their growing hope that things and people can be better. For someone else, it might, even subconciously, help them come closer to doing the same.
Much like most of the ideas in BEC, the goodness will spread in all kinds of ways for different people.
