Model Answer:

In our daily lives, we often come across situations where we find things discarded by others. On one such occasion, I happened to pick up an item that someone else had thrown away, which turned out to be quite a meaningful experience for me.

Where was it?
This incident occurred in a local park in my neighborhood. The park is a popular spot for morning walks and family outings, known for its greenery and peaceful environment. However, despite its beauty, the issue of littering is a persistent problem there.

When was it picked up?
I picked up the item one evening while I was taking a leisurely walk in the park. It was just around sunset, a time when the park is usually less crowded and more serene.

What did you do after you picked it up?
The item I found was an empty plastic bottle, carelessly thrown on the grass near a walking path. After picking it up, I looked around for a trash bin but realized that the nearest one was quite a distance away.

I decided to carry the bottle with me until I found a bin to dispose of it properly. Eventually, I found a recycling bin at the other end of the park and dropped the bottle there.

How did you feel?
Initially, I felt a bit annoyed and disappointed that someone would spoil the beauty of the park by littering. However, as I walked with the bottle in my hand, my feelings shifted. I felt a sense of responsibility and pride in doing my small part to keep the park clean.

It was a simple act, but it made me feel like I was contributing positively to my community and the environment. This experience also made me more aware of the importance of proper waste disposal and the impact of littering on public spaces.

Overall, picking up the discarded bottle in the park was a small but significant action for me. It reinforced the idea that every individual effort counts when it comes to maintaining the cleanliness and beauty of our shared spaces.

It was a reminder that being proactive about environmental care can start with simple acts like this, and it encouraged me to be more mindful of my surroundings and to take action whenever possible.
