The inspiring story of a man who was bothered by all the garbage he saw on the way to work, so this is what he did

On the way to work he started cleaning the river bank, which was crammed with garbage and trash, and all he had to do was get up every day half an hour before he finished collecting all the trash.

After posting the images on Facebook, some of his friends even helped him in this endeavor.

All they did was fill a garbage bag at a time until the job was done.

“Every day I cycle to work along the river bank. It's a pretty trail, except for one thing. "

"A strip of the shore is full of plastic bottles and other rubbish, also almost all plastic"

"This is the part full of garbage":


"The garbage bothered me so much that I decided to start picking it up."


"It took me about 30 minutes to fill a garbage bag with rubbish"

"Although the truth, a bag does not make much difference in an area as dirty as this."

"I decided to fill a garbage bag every day I was in the area."


"I shared my experience on Facebook and now about 1800 people 'like' this project"

"Many people told me that there should be more people like me!"

"And there are: this is my friend Rick helping me"


The contrast:

"This area is next to a bicycle route, and quite a few people got off their bikes to tell me that this was a great initiative."

"The trash tried to communicate with me"


"The last garbage bag"


"After filling 22 bags, this is the only thing I decided to keep."


"The idea is to motivate people to fill a garbage bag with rubbish every year."

"It only takes 30 minutes, you can tell the difference, and you will be surprised how good one feels afterward."


"Even a common coot began to nest in the area it had cleared."
