IDEAS FROM THE SANGHA:

Planned: Litter Clean-Up Campaign

Doing little things can make a big difference!

Why?
- This activity is simple to do, easily workable and can be done at any time
- Each and every one of us can help
- For the benefit of all sentient beings (protecting animals, water and nature)
- Every bending down is an act of devotion to the earth
  (We live on sacred ground)
- When we cleanse the earth, we cleanse ourselves
  (All things are interconnected)
- This activity raises awareness about both the waste we ourselves produce every day and that we encounter around us
  (There's no such thing as my rubbish or your rubbish. Rubbish concerns us all)
- Only together (Sangha), through community spirit and teamwork can we pull this off

When:
On a weekend with regular rotation (spring, summer and autumn) - date to be announced.
Where: MRC- from there, we're off to the area to be covered
We will distribute: Gloves, rubbish bags, high-visibility vests and possibly a map with a section of road marked.
Time: 9:00 AM
Duration: 9:00 AM - 12:30 PM
Conclusion: Lunch together

Important:
Bring a high-visibility vest (from your car, if you have one), sturdy shoes, rain gear.
