    These kids should be applauded, as should their parents (they have obviously done something right). However, this article also shows that there should be tougher enforcement of laws against littering. And here's an idea: Instead of relying on our kids to clean up trash on our streets, why not use chain gangs from our local penitentiary?

    Grasshoppers - you are doing a very good thing for the environment and your parents must be so proud of you. I love your outfits :) Thank you for doing what you do! I wish people would stop throwing garbage around - Newfoundland is so beautiful, but unfortunately, there is a lot of litter and there really is no need of it. I recently walked Manuels trails and was disgusted by the garbage on it - I just don't get it and it is pretty pathetic that a group of 8-year olds have to pick up after the general population.

    What a wonderful article. These young people and their parents should continue to be supported and encouraged.

      What a great bunch of kids . Future community leaders . Paradise has a lot to look forward to with those types of individuals growing up here . Too bad the current council is not so in tune with the environment . They do support these grasshoppers but could do a lot more . Lets start by having all these new home builders and developers in our town post a bond to cover clean up costs around the subdivisions . It is unfortunate when these kids do so much that many developers and builders choose to leave their trash to blow around neighbourhoods and do not ever provide portable latrines for their workers. Council as far as I know does nothing to prevent this from continuing.

    I think this is a great idea. Great job. Hope all of their hard work pays off and more people help clean up the litter.
