I was recently contacted by Ben and Lori who maintain the In the Bucket blog. Fed up with litter just like I am, they decided to do something about it.
Here is a description of In the Bucket, then Ben sent me the other day:
Our mission started after watching a PBS documentary with a team of volunteers cleaning up river beds and then later that night watching Obama delivering a speech which prompted us to ask the almighty question of "what can we do to help?" We decided to start picking up litter where we live, which is West Seattle. Two buckets a week was our goal. We are now up to 40 buckets and counting and have travelled all over Western Washington finding litter wherever we go. Much of it is of the corporate (i.e. McDonald's, 7-11, Aquafina) variety.
We encourage all others to join our cause and fill a bucket or bag and send us a picture, we'd love to add you and any of your readers to our Bucket Head club!
Check out the great work Ben and Lori are doing to get people to re-think the notion of littering. Do the right thing, be a Bucket Head!
