Moose Jaw Times-Herald: Lisa's Corner: Working together can produce amazing results

By Lisa Goudy

When we work together, we can accomplish amazing things.
While it’s true there are always things we can and should do individually, we can’t deny that there is always strength in numbers. The more people who are active for some type of change, and this could be almost anything, the stronger the chance of doing something about it. There are many things in the world that shouldn’t change, but there are also many things that should. Working together to make that happen is the best way to go.
I think a perfect, recent example of this was seen last week when a number of people in the community rallied together to pick up garbage. Littering is an issue in the world and every time we can clean a bit of it up, it makes a difference.
A 2014 article on Canada.com stated that the average Canadian person who litters would walk 12 steps looking for a garbage can “before giving up and dropping the trash on the ground,” it said. It added that cigarette butts are the most common type of litter in Canada, stating Canadians drop 8,000 tonnes of cigarette butts each year, most within 10 feet of an ashtray.
