Eloise G. Gives Her 2 Cents About Starting Project PUT

Eloise just turned 10.  She had a marvelous experience the other day at school when her class went into the woods near their school and picked up 3 full bags of garbage.  The children were amazed at how much trash they found, but they felt good to have cleaned it up and to have made their community more beautiful.

Eloise wanted to do the same thing when we took the Metro to downtown Washington, DC today to visit some museums.  Trash was everywhere and we decided to pick it up.  We filled 8 littered plastic shopping bags with garbage.  Some we recycled and some went into the city trash cans.

Eloise would like to share a couple of her thoughts on starting Project PUT:

“I just wanted to say I thought it was just sad for all the trash in our city. I love our city and I hate to see that people don’t care if their city is a junk yard or a trash can.  I’m just so happy that at least some people are willing to keep our city in good shape.  P-U-T (pick up trash) helps that.”

…Look around you…

In the name of God, stop a moment, cease your work, look around you.
Leo Tolstoy

One of my Facebook Friends just posted a meme picture with this quote.  It seems quite appropriate for the effort Eloise and I began today.

LOOK AROUND YOU!  There is garbage where it should not be, mucking up our landscape.  PICK UP TRASH and put it where it belongs.

It would be best for people to take responsibility for their trash and not litter in the first place, that is a given.  But if you see garbage and you CAN pick it up, then PICK UP TRASH and PUT it where it belongs.

Project PUT: Pick Up Trash (and put it where it belongs), a movement begins

I’m Emily G.  my daughter is Eloise G.  We were appalled by the litter in our community and we decided to do a little something about it.  We found littered plastic bags and filled them with trash we found while walking around.  We put recyclable items in the city’s recycle containers and the trash in the trash cans.  It was simple and easy.  Doing this little thing made the city look better and all sorts of people noticed.

You can do this, too, and make your community a better place to live.

PLEASE don’t litter.

If you see trash where it should not be and you are able to pick it up and PUT it where it belongs (recycle or a designated trash receptacle), please do.  This simple act of caring and responsibility will make your community a nicer place to be.
