Here's some results from some of the many community clean ups around Digby County this spring.
Thanks to everyone who helps make their community that much tidier.
Especially those who quietly clean the ditch on their local stretch of highway or street, those who take a garbage bag with them for their daily walk, and especially especially those who put their trash where it belongs in the first place.
Thanks to those who believe and act on the rule "If I don't pick this up, who will."

P.S. Ever heard of plogging? (group jogging events where participants fill trash bags as they go)
I wonder where a good plogging run would be most beneficial? let me know if you know of a trail or roadside that could really use a big group of ploggers to give it a go.
