Make a difference and influence others to join you

If you live in my community and you see me picking plastics and other food packing wastes in the street, don’t thank me, thank Deon Brann, my friend. It was him that influenced me to start doing it. When we started walking/jogging together as part of our morning exercise some years ago, he would regularly pick food packaging wastes on our way and dispose them properly. Few months ago, he suggested that we should jointly remove food packaging wastes, reminding me that litters could lead to the depreciation of property value in the area. Everyday now, I pick food packaging wastes and our community is cleaner because of it. Like Deon, we can all make a difference in the community and influence at least one person to do likewise. It’s all about being a beacon of hope and brightening the corner where we are. Instead of complaining, we can do something. You too can pick packaging wastes especially plastic, which has been estimated to be more than fish in the world’s oceans by 2050. Apart from the problem of waste, you can also make an impact by doing something about the problem of poverty, hunger and inequality in your community. Remember this, you should never ask what your community can do for you, rather ask what you can do for your community. 

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed individuals can change the world. In fact, it’s the only thing that ever has. Margaret Mead
