The weather was so nice this week that hundreds flocked to the beaches. But yesterday, it took a team of six people 5 hours to clean up all the trash that had been left behind.

This disgusting behaviour is being denounced by many, notably environmentalists. But individuals who care about the planet are also speaking out against it. Among them, a very special dog named Farah.

Devoted to the environment

Farah and her owner Fabrizio love to go for walks on the beach. But they DON’T love seeing all the trash people leave behind. So one day, they decided to take part in the #trashchallenge together.

Indeed, Fabrizio started training Farah to pick up pieces of trash and bring them back to him so he could throw them away. Being a Labrador, Farah loved nothing more than to retrieve for her owner, and the whole thing soon became a game.

 

Guarda guarda... Un cane in una spiaggia, adesso sporca tutto.... No, Farah ha solo pulito un po' della vostra "inciviltà". Non siate animali [cit. Farah]

A good example

By sharing photos and videos of their beach cleanups, Fabrizio and Farah hope that people will follow their example and take part in “trash challenges” of their own. Leaving bits of plastic in the sea or on the beach can cause terrible damage to flora and fauna, and destroy the delicate ecosystem that we should be trying to preserve today!

In any case, Farah can be very proud of herself. She’s an exemplary citizen!
