There’s a phrase, ‘Can’t see the forest for the trees,’ which means people lose themselves in the details, forgoing the overall vision. I often chuckle at this phrase because I – to extend the metaphor – often can’t see the trees for the leaves.
I am a detail-oriented person, which is something I appreciate about myself – especially when it comes to my own individual efforts to improve aspects of my life. For the purposes of this blog, I focus on environmental “individual efforts” to preserve (and improve) the environment – which is clearly in the interest of the forest!
With that in mind, this video showcases Zero Litter’s first ever Trash Mob, where individuals take quick, decisive action – and in only 30 minutes, completely clean a huge abandoned lot in Baltimore City.
My question to you is – having seen this video, what can you do in 30 minutes to improve the environment?
