20-year-old climate activist Edgar McGregor saw trash scattered around Eaton Canyon in Southern California located inside the Angeles National Forest and he wanted to make a difference.
For 589 straight days, he has visited the canyon and collected debris – including iPhones, beer cans, and bottles. On March 5th, he tweeted that the entire entire was clean. The announcement quickly went viral, racking up over 107K likes and a million views.
Though, he also noted on his Twitter that this isn’t where his trash pickup ends. He says that he’ll have to pick up trash for 2 to 3 days a week to maintain the cleanliness that he’s made sure of in the canyon.
McGregor posts on his Twitter about the importance of not littering and taking care of your community.
