CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — No one likes seeing trash and clutter on the side of our city streets so one man from the Flour Bluff area is doing something to change that.

He has created a Facebook page called "One Piece a Day" and the goal is to help keep our community clean.

The creator of the page Ryan Petty says this is an issue that can be resolved but everyone needs to do their part.

“It's unnecessary, it's uncalled for people don't have to do this,” says fisherman Darin Osborn.

Darin Osborn enjoys taking his family fishing but the major catch that surrounds him is trash!

Osborn says he tries to ignore the trash but also adds that this is an awful thing to see especially with wildlife around.

“I guess as you give to the world, the world gives back so people are just trying to do their part,” says Ryan Petty.

Seeing trash and clutter on the ground, Ryan Petty took this issue to social media.

Petty created a group on Facebook called "One Piece a Day."

From there, folks from other cites to even other countries are stepping up to have a cleaner environment.

“If you get 30 or 40 people out here filing up a trash bag a piece you can make a serious dent so. That's what's all about,” says Petty.

Ryan Petty says he was shocked that so many people from all over want to take part and to keep our areas trash free.

“I think everyone can get you know some benefits out of you know just helping the fellow man,” says Petty.

The group plans to meet Saturday, October 12th, 2019 on the Laguna Shores exit in Flour Bluff to clean that area.
