Today we were trash heroes! We joined up with a group and picked up bits and pieces of rubbish off the street — it wasn’t for that long, but we managed to get really hot and sweaty and fill a fair few bags between us.
Given the amount of plastic floating round this city, it’s totally symbolic. But it was fun to take part. The people behind it are Clean Yangon, Green Yangon, one of the many networks that are really trying to make a difference here.
We plan to team up with them in future and also zoom in on organic waste. Yes!
