I am reminded this morning that not every post has to be soul-wrenching or an introspective piece. My environmentalism is about doing something now about the climate crisis. And the thing that started it all is plastic picking! So here are my monthy totals. I commit to at least 20 bags a month and I hit my goal. Feburary is a shorter month, but I’ve already gathered 3 for the month. If I’m low, I’m just do a quick bag at work because the HMO parking lot is still a mess. At least I cleaned up around where I park my car.

For Janaury 2021, I cleaned up 20 bags of plastic pollution and salvaged 67 Items from the ocean or landfill. In total, I’ve cleaned up 381 bags of plastic pollution and salvaged #1461 Items! Click here to see my lifetime totals page https://drplasticpicker.com/plastic-picking-round-up/

As I told my dear husband Mr. Plastic Picker, picking up that much plastic pollution and salvaged that many items is a transformative process. One realizes how much waste there is in the world but also how much one person can truly do. And check out what I also did yesterday!

Home-made radish greens, beet greens and kholrabi pizza!
Propogating succulents, like A LOT OF SUCCULENTS!

I may do a bit of clinical work this weekend, but it’s another glorious day to think about the earth and continue or minimalism journey. Stay tuned! There are fruits trees on our roof deck now. The green roof deck transformation is beginning! Signing off, your litter picking pediatrician living my authenic life! LOL. I hope you have an authenic and less plastic and NOT-PREPACKAGED weekend. Don’t let someone or some company determine your self-worth. Let nature and your inner-wild-person tell you. My inner wild-person told me I’m a good cook and a gardener and eco-warrior!!!
