Aldergrove child tackles trash armed with shopping bags and barbecue tongs

Kinsley Moore grew tired of the garbage on her morning walks with Mom and decided to do something

Chelsea Moore and her soon-to-be-six-year-old daughter Kinsley didn’t like the amount of trash they would see on their walks around Aldergrove.

Residing just off of 32nd Ave and 276th Street, the pair walks together every morning.

“Since the beginning of summer, my daughter is completely saddened by the amount of trash we find on our walks,” Moore told The Star. “So, I went to the dollar store and bought her barbecue tongs and a pair of gloves.”

The mother and daughter pick up garbage and fill up one shopping bag – sometimes more – each day.

“She wants to share and show people how easy it is to pick up trash. She also wants to ask people if they see any trash to pick it up,” Moore added. “Every little bit counts.”

Moore said Kinsley specifically wanted to share her efforts with The Star because she knew many people read the newspaper and she wants to spread the word to help save the Earth.

“The earth is very special, and the animals are important too, and I don’t want them choking on any garbage or getting tangled up in trash,” Kinsley stressed the The Star. “And if you put a banana on the ground, someone may slip!”
