My idea for my stalking project was to put "clean trash" on the sidewalk near both a trash can and recycling bin and to see if anyone would pick it up or just walk past it. Then, after a while, replace the trash with money. To me, "clean trash" means empty water bottles with the caps on, paper, and food wrappers from food that is dry or not messy. The reason I used "clean trash" was because I wanted it to be something that someone could feel okay picking up and throwing away and not worry about getting themselves dirty or getting other people's germs.What I wanted to see is if people are willing to go out of their way and take time out of their day to do something small for the environment, to clean up the park, or just because it's a nice thing to do; or if people are only willing to stop what their doing if it benefits them. My conclusion, much like I assumed, was: people suck. I put a newspaper and a few pieces of notebook paper on the ground in various places and watched if for about a 20 minutes and after no one picked it up, I decided to mix it up and go with some food wrappers (a goldfish bag, a box that had some individually wrapped fruit snacks in it and other things) around the area and once I got bored of staring at those on the ground for about an hour, I went with an empty water bottle, with the cap on it in the middle of the sidewalk. The closest I got to the "Good Samaritan" I was looking for was a 5-or-so year old kid that kicked it out of the way. After my intense hour and a half of trash watching, I recycled the bottle and put a ten dollar bill on the ground folded in half in the grass next to the sidewalk and the first soccer mom that trotted up snatched it up and said something along the lines of "Lunch is on me ladies!" In conclusion, we're all a bunch of greedy animals.
