Having a clean environment is something worth making an effort for. So today I stepped out with garbage bag in hand and proceeded to do my share for 20 minutes. After about 5 minutes, I came across a city worker who was clearly happy and thankful to see a citizen helping out. Wouldn't you know it, he gave me a garbage picker and garbage bag 'hoop' to make my job easier. My first thought was how acts of kindness generate more acts of kindness! Now I'm fully equipped to keep our little neighbourhood in the Netherlands clean!
