Guy Raises Awareness With Photos of Trash He Picked Up On the Streets

An Instagram account called Peter Picks Up Trash has a good purpose; it shows all the trash a guy name Peter picks up. According to him, with his social media account, he wants to demonstrate how easy is to pick up trash, instead of walking past it.

“You can do it too. Maybe we save the world,” Peter shared on his Instagram account. His trash picking project started two years ago.

“It’s one of the easiest, brainless, physically-demanding-less, things a single person can do to help the environment,” he shared on Bored Panda. “And if a thousand people start doing it, a hundred thousand, a million, a hundred million… we could make a really big change really quickly by doing the simplest of tasks.”

In just a couple of days, Peter reached over one thousand followers on his Instagram profile. Every photo includes a short message, explaining how easy it was for him to pick up the trash.
