Alabama Coastal Heritage Trust, Alabama USA
We see two ways to pick up trash - happily taking care of Mother Nature or angrily being dumped on by litter bugs. We choose happiness and so do many others. For example at a sustainability conference a local university president who owns a beach house on Dauphin Island talked about walking the beach with his wife, picking up trash and how the people who passed them would say thank you. And when they walked the beach the next day some of these people had their own bags and were picking up trash!
Studies show that this may be how it works:
