Piece by Piece

My Hero. A young guy named Chad Pregracke started picking up trash along and in the Mississippi River after working several jobs and being surprised by the amount of trash he saw. Everywhere, barrels, dolls, bowling balls, refridgerators, anything you can think of. So he started asking others to help him, and founded Living Lands and Waters - they take volunteers and go and clean up the rivers and then split it up among trash and recycling. He says, during the interview, "I read in a book somewhere, the earth was not destroyed as a whole, it's piece by piece, and I think that's the same way it's got to be fixed - piece by piece." Please watch this video - it is very inspiring.
