Today is January 12, 2010 and if you live in Tucson, wherever you happen to be at 12 noon, city officials are asking that you stop, look around, and collect whatever trash you see . . . for twelve minutes.
There’s no sign-up involved, no report required, just an eye for litter, two hands for collection, and a trash bag.
I have my own beautification project this morning—a hair appointment—which could have me sitting in the stylist’s chair at 12 noon. If so, I promise to sweep up my follicles. If I’m finished, I’ll be the blonder, more perfectly coiffed woman picking up the stuff I usually run past during my morning workout.
Twelve minutes at Twelve Noon Today. Let’s help keep Tucson beautiful.
