shitterlitter

Trashy trashy cleanup yesterday with awesome trashy friends in the Lindo Channel and up on Humboldt Rd. A good morning!! . . Lots of people (15, maybe?) joined the Humboldt Rd cleanup. It was really encouraging to see. We picked up clothes, blankets, food containers, single use cups, HUNDREDS of cig butts, broken glass, a knife, some football gear (turned over to PD to see if anyone reported it stolen), #shitterlitter - just the usual Saturday morning cleanup. . . It is so so so so smoky and gross here. Can’t imagine what they’re going through in Redding, 75 miles north of here. This #CarrFire is just devastating. 🌎🌎💔💔 . . #chicoca #chicocalifornia #lifeinchico #litterati #grabbits #2minutebeachclean #5piecesaday

In trying to avoid trash-walking related carpal tunnel syndrome, I’ve learned that #cartbage is easier dealt with when I just dump the garb out. That’s what you see in photo #1 - shopping cart full of garb, dumped on the ground, and picked up. Yay? . . It is so effing hot in Chico. Supposed to be 102 today, and over 103 degrees every day for the next week. Uuuggghhh. It’s makes everything feel dirty and miserable. . . There were 11 people hanging out at Alba Ave., including 3 women and 1 man sitting on the bike path (blocking 3/4 of the path). The area is covered in garbage, which I don’t pick up when there are people hanging out there, and everyone seemed dirty and miserable. North Valley is suffering. . . Photo #2 - a bunch of #shitterlitter which I refuse to pick up; someone kicked a bunch of dirt over it. And hi there Dutch Bros. . . #chicoca #chicocalifornia #lifeinchico #litterati #grabbits #2minutebeachclean #15minutebikepathclean #5piecesaday

Oh, Bidwell Park, we are doing you wrong. I found this garb this morning in lower park - I didn’t scout it out ahead of time, but these days, any path that you take down to the creek will lead to a garb pile like this. 💔💔💔 . . This is in lower Bidwell Park about 2/10 of a mile upstream from Sycamore Pool. No personal belongings. This is all litter, including large bags of trash that were brought here to sort through. Food containers, beer bottles, single use cups, HUNDREDS of cigarette butts, books that the pages had been torn out to use as #shitterlitter, and more. Who knows how much blew into the creek. 💔🌎 . . This beautiful little swimming hole right on Big Chico Creek is now mostly cleaned up - how toxic it still is, I have no idea. 🤢🤢🤢 Sorry, Bidwell Park. Sorry, Big Chico Creek. . . The last photo is a bunch of garb I didn’t get. Didn’t feel safe. 🤬🤬 . . #chicoca #chicocalifornia #lifeinchico #litterati #grabbits #2minutebeachclean #5piecesaday #bidwellpark #lowerbidwellpark #bigchicocreek #onemile

Bike path - needles, @dutchbroschico @dutchbroscoffee, #shitterlitter, fast food garb. I'm getting pretty tired of it. 💔💔💔 . . #chicoca #chicocalifornia #lifeinchico #grabbits #litterati #2minutebeachclean #15minutebikepathclean #5piecesaday

Those of us in Chico woke up this morning to the terrible news that there is a big fire in upper Bidwell Park. This is really bad news. The sky is gray, people were evacuated this morning from some residential neighborhoods, and we are all hoping beyond hope that this fire can be contained quickly. Terrible terrible news. . . So, why not head over to lower Bidwell Park to do some trash pick up. My first stop (second photo) was an area that some friends and I cleaned up back in January, and to my great relief it is mostly still clean! Really great surprise this morning. Just some minor cleanup needed. . . Then I headed down near the creek, and just had time for about one bag of trash pick up. So much #shitterlitter. It's discouraging. Also, a bunch of bike tire rims, an emptied out wallet 😡😡😡, and a cute little turtle. . . #chicoca #chicocalifornia #lifeinchico #grabbits #litterati #2minutebeachclean #5piecesaday #BidwellPark #lowerbidwellpark

Bike path being all gross yesterday. Among the findings – ex-food (peaches, that probably would have been really yummy at one point); hheeyyy @dutchbroschico and @dutchbroscoffee; some really egregious #shitterlitter, complete with empty toilet paper roll, right on the side of the bike path (I couldn't bring myself to pick it up 🤢🤢🤢); aaand, the usual. Why so disgusting, bike path???? . . #chicoca #chicocalifornia #lifeinchico #litterati #grabbits #2minutebeachclean #15minutebikepathclean #5piecesaday #dutchbros #dutchbroschico #dutchbroscoffee

I had some free time this morning, so I went over to lower Bidwell Park, where I hadn't been for awhile. Oh, beautiful lower park, we are doing you wrong . . All of this was picked up along the creek upstream of One Mile and Caper Acres. Sorry about the egregious #shitterlitter photos. It's tough out there right now. The cig butts are also out of control. . . I encountered three groups of folks sleeping next to the creek. Soooo much litter in their camping areas. Many people without homes make the park their temporary living place. I understand this. Everyone needs somewhere to sleep. What I can't fathom are the piles of litter. There are garbage cans on the path literally every 50 yards. 💔🌎💔🌎 . . Sorry, Big Chico Creek. Sorry, Bidwell Park. Sorry, planet. . . But hey, the last photo is some of the beeyooteeful park. Garb or no, I will always love it there. Gotta show it some love!!! ❤️❤️🌎🌎 . . #chicoca #chicocalifornia #lifeinchico #litterati #grabbits #2minutebeachclean #5piecesaday

A very great morning cleaning up with some awesome humans at Comanche Creek Greenway (off Midway just north of Hegan Ln). . . Everything you see here has been cleaned up. It was 5 truckloads picked up and disposed of at the city yard. Soooooooo much garb. Food wrappers, discarded clothes, #shitterlitter, bike parts, pallets - you name it, we prolly picked it up today. 🌎🌎🌎 Bonus - a super ominous sign (photo #4)! . . #chicoca #chicocalifornia #lifeinchico #litterati #grabbits #5piecesaday #2minutebeachclean

Tonight I thought I'd have a delicacy for a snack #ella1125 #dogshaming #maltese #poodle #snack #shitterlitter

Roadside pickup driving at work - realised IG never posted my initial comments which was a bit of a rant so probably just aswell! The abridged version is below #couldntcarelessnotcarelesssociety #deadcansimpersonatingsmallmammaltraps #roadkillbottlesimpersonatingdeadmammaltraps. #myreusedpinkbucket.

Spotted three bags of dog waste on the short walk from the trailhead to the pond. No one wants to go walking in the woods and look at bagged dog waste. TAKE IT WITH YOU! 👎🏼😝💩 . . #leavenotrace #packinpackout #litter #litterati #shitterlitter #disgusting #JustGrabBits #exposingtrash #pickitup #binit #at2017 #mypark #notyourtrashcan #mtminsi

A tiny fraction of all the garb picked up yesterday at an excellent #lowerbidwellpark cleanup with my trashy friends (said with total respect!!). We worked from the horseshoe pits down to Annie's Glen and although I had to leave early (slacker!!), nearly 1,000 lbs of garb was cleaned up by 14 people over a span of less than a mile. . . What did we find? You name it. Needles, #shitterlitter (second picture...sorry...), household trash, empty cans of roach spray, discarded clothes, food wrappers, broken glass...all within a stone's throw of the creek or closer. . . If you're familiar with that path that goes from One Mile to Annie's Glen, you know that every path down to the creek leads to a pile of garb. Not anymore - it's now clean (temporarily, at least!!). A good morning. ❤️🌎 . . #chicoca #chicocalifornia #lifeinchico #grabbits #litterati #2minutebeachclean #3hourparkclean #bidwellpark #5piecesaday

Tahoe Rim Trail pt: 16 Forest fires in the surrounding distance shield the sun, concealing the campsites cans and wrappers. If you Pack it in.. Pack it out! @mr.overhill and I hike south through the morning, exploring the fungus among us. We're roughly 130 miles in on day 7. It's time to run! #day7 #tahoerimtrail #pacificcresttrail #keeptahoeblue #pcta #packfuloftrash #laketahoe #sunrise #mushroomlovers #mushroomsociety #justgrabbits #trashfreetrailsproject #hiking #instavideo #vegan #packitin #packitout #shitterlitter #lakes #morningmood #traillife #trailkarma #doyoulitter

Tahoe Rim Trail pt: 11 Mule Ear is good for the back cheek! Thanks for the lesson @mr.overhill. Gaining ele, I realize the Trail is Clean. We're about to be the highest people on the Tahoe Rim Trail. Probably at the lowest of elevations also 😆. We climb to 10,300 for a butterflies view. Inspecting all the flowers before sundown. #tahoerimtrail #packfuloftrash #mtrosesummit #keeptahoeblue #muleears #shitterlitter #thetrailisclean #justgrabbits #wesnapback #trashfreetrailsproject #overhill #cleansweep #thehighest #wildflowers #butterfly #views #veganhiker #backpackers #instavideo

Tahoe Rim Trail pt: 4 Shitty makeshift fire rings filled with garbage. I devour the last of my vegan donuts before joining @mr.overhill to clean it up. #tahoerimtrail #packfuloftrash #keeptahoeblue #firerings #camping #traillife #vegandonuts #veganhiker #shitterlitter #fuelcans #plastic #wrappers #mountaintop #justgrabbits #trashfreetrailsproject #wesnapback

Showers Lake was surprisingly clean. I removed a plastic bag which had been a chew toy for critters. @mr.overhill found some #shitterlitter and doo doo butta. #tahoerimtrail #leavenotrace #packfuloftrash #doyoulitter #reflection #showerslake #mountainlake #trashfreeearth #grabbits #trashlete #granitegear #traillife #hikers #stewardship
