A note reflecting on last week’s trash cleanup at Trinity Bellwoods:
Small pieces of litter (cigarette butts, bottle caps, broken glass) in big parks might feel like nothing to the everyday person, but we often forget that there are many smaller living things that use these park spaces too.
A dog or squirrel would feel much more affected by our park litter than us, simply because they are smaller and have a closer relationship to the ground.
Let’s be more empathetic to our smaller friends, and keep our parks healthy!
It begins when we change what we think, but things truly start when we act on the things that we think. Here comes the age-old saying, our actions speak louder than words.
Intentions matter for only so long. When we intend to create better transportation infrastructure for a city, to make traffic more efficient, safer, and on time, delays and cancellations communicate that we never intended to do any of it in the first place.
That’s why when Magali Lafleur from Find Your Alternative and I wanted to make an environmental difference in Toronto, we’re going hands-in-dirt into cleaning up our city’s parks with our community.
Two everyday citizens wanting better, where we can make an immediate difference.
If you want to join us, the event is today. We’re meeting up at 6:30 by Trinity Bellwoods Park by Queen St. and Strachan Ave. We’ll see you there!
