Picking up trash

Remember when you were a kid and it was OK to pick up garbage off the street and put it in a trash can? I remember one vacation where a friend and I rowed around in a boat picking up garbage just to make the area nicer. Now, Wife and I tell our kids NOT to pick up garbage.....too much fear of germs, or cuts getting infected, rampant staff infections....blah, blah, blah. Still, I want them to do the right thing. We've said that maybe some day before we take our walk around the block with the dogs, we could put on disposable gloves, bring along a garbage bag, and let them pick up the litter they see. Guess that still would not prevent cuts. Maybe they need one of those grabber tools for this task!
