Forces of Nature

Hello everyone!

This weekend (29-30) we had yet another pollution cleaning challenge for 'Cleaning the Capitol'. The area we chose was the forest of Katimavik E.S. We had a very succesful run of cleaning the forest with having 4-5 garbage bags, 1 third of a recycling bin and 2 boxes worth of broken glass.

Cleaning the forest took about 1 hour to cover about 2 thirds of the forest area and found a couple of things you might not find! You'd be surprised about the glass because it seems like once the drink they smash the glass bottles and just repeatedly do it in different areas because I found 2 bottoms of beer bottles, not a fun thing!

Before I move on to the aftermath, I just want to say good job to everyone who came out and picked up garbage!

Now, once we were done with the garbage, we had a group picture with the wheel-barrow of garbagness. Here's the picture for anyone who's curious.

You can count how many bags there are and correct me if you're that inclined in proving someone wrong today! As we moved on we had a snack that was almost to good to be true but it's a snack well deserved.
And if you want a closer look on the garbage. If you don't want to look at the pictures, just skip ahead.

 Of course, the Nestle was from the snacks but, it's still an achievement that we recycled it, not tossed into the forest!
Prove me wrong!

See the beer? My point exactly.

All in all, it was a successful day and it's not easy doing this! It's devotion and hard work that gets us here, not fun and games (except for the carnival day). And thanks for turning up everyone!

Thanks for reading!
