The Bradford Era – CLEANUP TOOLS: Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful offers cleanup tools and resources to those who are compelled to clean up nature when they see trash scattered amidst the beauty. Fresh air and sunshine can help improve your mood, lower blood pressure and reduce stress to name a few. But the sight of litter while enjoying nature defeats the purpose. For those who want to clean up the trash, however, it is important to be safe about the effort.
In addition to littered gloves, masks and wipes that are potentially contaminated, there is also nature itself to be aware of. Stinging insects, ticks and snakes are all active this time of year.
