The engineer finally switched the gear by swapping his second job for a full-time job of cleaning the surroundings. Unwinding his cleaning spree in North Carolina, he went ahead to explore the corners for the bits of trash and mess.
As he dived into the mess, he started discovering nature and variety of bits that humans leave behind unabashed. He started his cleaning spree in the lap of nature.

Shedding light on his nature-cleaning spree, he shared, “I realised I could make a huge impact, and I learned that it was pretty fun too. I got hooked when everywhere I turned on my college campus presented a new place to clean up. Now, I go searching for the most neglected areas, and I invite friends to come along. When I’m lucky they ask me to come along first”.
Adding to that, he shared, “I now treat it like a job. My friends and I have cleaned up over 400 locations. We keep safe by wearing durable rubber coated gloves, and we try to help each other. I believe that I can change the world by doing this”.
Taking on the trash’s nature, he said, “(He has found)Wallets, IDs, passports, carbon fibre bikes, safes, DJ equipment, phones, laptops, tablets, AirPods and more”.
It has represented a milieu of religions and traditions.
Taking on that, he shared, “I’ve had a clean-up where people were speaking, like, four different languages! I’ve had people join in. People have brought me wine, snacks, money, invited me to lunch, and more”.
He has decided to use the four days a week to carry on a cleaning spree around the U.S. Discussing the ill-effects of trash, he shared, “Littered aluminium cans can end up in hay bales and eaten by cows; cutting their mouths and more. Littered food brings wildlife to roadsides where they can get hit”.
