This is a quick how-to guide to picking up trash in front of your home. It's really frustrating to walk out of your building and see trash. It makes you less happy to be living there, less inclined to go outside, and sends a message to your neighbors and people walking by that you don't care and neither should they.
People who make the small effort it takes to pick up trash often find that they've inspired their neighbors to do the same. And when a critical mass of people on your block keep the street clean, your block is lovelier and there's a sense of pride up and down the block. You're also more likely to get to know your friendlier neighbors because you'll be out on the street a bit more.
You may agree with all of that and still think, "but why in the world do I
have to actually pick it up myself
?" It sounds gross and like a total pain. But it's actually not if you follow my advice.To do this Instructable, you need:
-Napkins or tissue papers
