-Park Clean Up: Every time my family goes to the park we spend the first ten minutes picking up trash. I keep gloves and trashbags in my car so we are always prepared. Imagine how much cleaner our parks would be if everyone took a couple of minutes picking up trash at the parks they love and enjoy. I encourage you and your family to start doing this too if you are able.
