BEC #010 – A Very Simple Idea About Litter

Thanks RaveDuck!

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.

You can talk more about this idea on the forums here, or about any of the ideas posted there, OR share your own idea!

According to the comic, its as entertaining as a video game. Heh! Then I’ll try to start rackin’ up points whenever I see trash now.


And sometimes those points are money! Not sure about where you are, but here you can get $0.10 for every glass or plastic bottle or can you find. Walking along a main road, it’s not hard to get $2 or $3 for a half-hour’s walk.
