Collecting bottles

collecting bottles by Jere Ketola (JKetola)) on 500px.com

This snapshot was taken on the street, close to Kaivopuisto (a park in the southern tip of the city of Helsinki). The culture of collecting bottles to earn money seems to always enjoy a rise when the times are tougher. The recycling system is really rather good in that it leaves less trash and less broken glass to bother about in the city. Still somehow sad if collecting bottles is someones main income.
