Day 59

Day 59


Cleaning up someone else's mess!!!

Jodie Underhill came to India as a tourist. She was upset by the mountains of garbage and the indifference of the locals and chose to do something about it. She gathered some volunteers and together they cleaned up a children’s playground that had been turned into a garbage dump.

That one act of caring became the beginning of Waste Warriors, the organization Jodie started which cleans up shopping complexes, forest areas and more. Funding comes from grants, donations and a small fee for the cleanup.

When faced with an enormous mess, it can be easy to feel overwhelmed and not know where to start. This inspirational woman began with one piece of garbage and she turned a dump into a playground.
