"Let’s go to the other side of the hill, there must be more stuff waiting for cleaning!" I called on all the 51 members in of "Green Action Group" in a loud voice. Collecting garbage twice a week on local hills is our convention, which was initially raised by our geography teacher an environmental zealot. Although being to retire soon, he was still passionate about encouraging us students to conduct diverse environmental actions on disparate landscaped areas, such as forests, lakes and hills, where our "GAG" later spent the whole weekends on.
The first time to collect garbage on the hill was unforgettable as it was actually not so easy as it sounded like, especially when you had to sought efficient ways to well organize the group work and as well take care of every member at the same time. But, somehow, I did not feel bored or exhausted at all. Climbing up and down with nimbleness and picking up plastic bags, empty bottles and every other litter brought us a piece of pure natural land without contamination as well as a sense of contentment and freshness. Viewing from the peak of the hill, however, we found this little green elevation we just created was surrounded by concrete forest of cities, trembling and cowering, which blew away all our satisfaction and pride.
From then on, members in "GAG" have virtually united into an environmentalists group. Saving water bottles, collecting signatures for environmental promotion and making school recycle bins, we begin our green actions from every trifle around us. Sharing the same ideology of environmentalism, we believe in Marshall McLuhan’s words: "There are no passengers on Spaceship Earth. We are all crew."
