Mani, the teenager above, is one of the persons who help the earth. He takes away our old newspapers and magazines to be recycled. He pays for them by weight. I got seventy rupees for last month's newspapers, which I used to buy a bird bath.!
This woman takes away used plastic bottles and cans to be recycled. Used plastic does not fetch as big a price as old newspapers.
These are the persons who work to keep the city clean and the planet healthy.
This is my contribution to Our World Tuesday.


  1. These are the unsung heroes!

  2. The unsung heroes indeed! This is so wonderful of you to bring attention to those who help our cities and our world! Thank you!!


  3. They really are. My husband tells me I should accept whatever price they quote since they are actually doing us a favour coming home and picking up the waste material.

  4. It pleases me to see the recycling!

  5. People are incredible! It always amazes me when I see women carrying so much on their heads...definitely not something I can do. Thanks for sharing! :)

  6. I applaud these young people. I know they need to make a living and it is very hard work. Besides working in this way they are helping us all.
