It's Earth Day today. We all need to take care of whatever tiny corner of the planet we live in. I try to recycle and reuse everything that I can, but there's still a small bag of garbage to be picked up every couple of weeks. Mostly plastic stuff that can't be recycled which makes me feel very guilty.
I'm looking after my granddog Tessa this weekend. We just went out for a nice walkies, especially enjoyable as the sky is blue and the sun is shining for the first time for a couple of weeks. My pockets always have at least 3 recyclable poop bags tucked away, in case of doggy emergencies. That's the worst thing about dog walking..... picking up that poop! Yuk.
However, I do it, secure the bag, and take it home and put it in the green bin.
But on our walk today, I saw five, YES FIVE!, used squished poop bags, full of you-know-what, tied and thrown in the bushes. Disgusting and nasty! Surely, if you can be bothered to pick up your dog's poop in a recyclable bag, you can find the energy to carry it home and dispose of it responsibly.
Come on dog owners, do your bit to keep our neighbourhood clean!
