This weekend we went to a very large flea market to find some vintage pieces. I love savaging for vintage jewelry, which I take apart and re-use and re-construct for some pieces in my Black Feather line, so each piece is unique and most of the time one of a kind.
The flea market was situated right next to a beautiful lake. We walked and watched the birds and ducks get fed.
And we picked up trash that we found in the lake. Visitors come to the lake with bags of bread to feed the birds, and many bags end up in the lake. Plastic bags to not biodegrade, so they are forever in the lake, small fishes, turtles and the birds can suffocate or accidentally eat them.
It only takes a few seconds or minutes to pick up trash, and it makes such a big difference.
I have a person in the neighborhood who I admire greatly. I see him walking in the morning picking up small pieces of trash in front of everyone's homes that must have blew into yards. He's just doing his part to make sure our neighborhood/community is taken care of, we need more people like him.
