On a chilly fall day, me and a few of my friends from the Tennessee Aquarium Youth Volunteer program went out early that day and started making a difference in our town! We wore silly outfits to bring people's attention to our efforts. We worked hard in the cold, fall air and picked up every cigarette bud, bottle cap, and wrapper in sight. We racked in over 30lbs of trash with the five of us that we're in my small group! I was so happy with our efforts! We spent 3 hours or so picking up anything we could that belonged in the trash. Not only did we save animals and the environment from being hurt by our species destructive habits, but we brought awareness to the fact through our creative and effective outfits! Our signs read, "The world is our oyster, not our trash can. Pick it up!", "This look coming soon to a town near you if we don't... STOP LITTERING!", and lastly to stay reachable to the youth, "Go team #gogreen, saving the world one recycled bottle at a time.". Even if I don't recieve any praise or awards for my friends and my efforts, I am so proud of the difference we made. So many people stopped us and asked us about our outfits and thanked us for our efforts! It was a great experience to say the least, I will be continuing this event every chance I get.
