Plastic is currently one of the biggest problems that our world has. It is being used all around the world and it does not disintegrate like other materials. The world now has an accumulation of this it is polluting our planet.
There have been a lot of people who have been working on making sure that they stop using plastic. There are also people who choose to help the planet by picking up plastic littering our planet. However, their efforts are not enough since they are just a small portion of the whole number of people who use plastic and discard them like there is no tomorrow.
But perhaps this dog can inspire you and me to do our share of taking care of our planet. This is such an adorable dog and he is helping our Mother Earth in his own way.
Meet Chipper. Chipper is Katie Pollak’s dog. Katie noticed that her dog is quite fond of plastic bottles. She saw this when they went out on walks. The dog would go and pick up plastic bottles that were littered about.
Katie thought that this was a good thing. So she decided to push it further. She gave Chipper a treat each time the dog picks up a plastic bottle when they were out walking.
The whole thing became a normal thing for Katie and Chipper. They have even shared a lot of hours recycling these plastic bottles.
There are times when Katie thinks of cleaning up a specific area in their neighborhood. She would bring Chipper and her other dog to these cleanups.
However, when they are just out for walks, Katie would bring with her a recycling bag. This is where she and Chipper put in the plastic bottles that Chipper picks up.
Good job, Chipper! If dogs can help save our planet, so can we.
