In the month or so I've been riding now I've found myself stopping and picking up other peoples trash. more specifically people's discarded plastic rings from 6packs of beer/soda. so far I've picked up 11 of them and I bring them home and cut them up and throw them away. also I've picked up wrappers from others nutrition bars (nature valley etc etc.) found 4 of these. also found a tangled mess of fishing line on a bridge where people tend to fish a local creek. and once to help an injured bird out of the road (should I have left it? I don't know). as far as the bird goes I found it was the most troubling decision. if I moved it to a lawn odds are it wasn't going to make it, but at the same rate I feel if it I left it and it was hit at least it would be quick and painless (I assume, birds are fragile animals). I still don't know if I made the right decision with the bird (is that a horrible thing to think?). regardless I find it kind of frustrating to have stop my ride to address these items more specifically the trash than the bird. and I'm not sure what bothers me more the empty plastic 6pack rings or the nutrition bar wrappers. the nutrition bar wrappers bother me to think that other cyclists or joggers (healthy minded people) are littering and not showing any concern for nature the empty plastic rings because my girlfriend is an animal lover of all sorts and since many of us were children we've been raised to know the harm they can cause to animals. am I doing the right thing, or should I just pass by as if I didn't notice? am I the only person who does this? are we the keepers of the road?
