IN THIS SELFISH AGE, HOW AWESOME IS A WEEKEND VOLUNTEER CLEANUP OF THE DON VALLEY

Organized by ‘Don’t Mess With The Don’, hundreds of volunteers gave up their Saturday by picking trash in TORONTO’s Don Valley.

The Don is more than just a park. It’s home to a six-lane freeway, access to 10 ravines, bike and running trails, Evergreen Brick Works, and a sizable population of native animals and birds.

At day’s end, an impressive 1,500 bags (about 100,000 pounds) of trash were waiting for pickup.

Don’t Mess With The Don collaborated with Evergreen, Greenpeace, Salomon, Arc’teryx and One Piece a Day in this second-annual event.  <PHOTO ABOVE – some of Saturday’s volunteers in one of the Don Valley parks>
