nixon.jpgFrom Sex and The City to garbage picking? Well, no — but for those not familiar with the 3Rs, Cynthia Nixon’s actions last week might have appeared a little bizarre.

The actress who formerly played Miranda Hobbes on the hit HBO series was in Riverside Park with her son. Apparently, a woman threw out a Ziplock bag that had contained some candy and was shocked when someone went in immediately after it. From the article,

“‘A woman got up off the bench and fished through the garbage to get my Ziploc,’ she says. ‘I was standing there in utter shock that Cynthia Nixon picked my trash out of the garbage. She then turns to me and asks, ‘Is it okay to take this?”

The lady said that it was. ‘She then took her son’s half-eaten snack and placed it in my used baggie.’”

Shocking! Nice job, Cynthia. Though we would encourage everyone with plans to reuse trash to think twice about using items that once held food. Or, at least clean the item first. Viva the 3Rs!
