To protect the environment, he began picking up garbage with bags along his way and placed them in his trunk, and then transferred them to the garbage disposal station. He said he had collected over 500 bags of garbage.

Cai said even though he spent a couple of hours picking up garbage every day, he didn't feel tired and was not afraid to get dirty. All he wanted was to call on more people to care about the environment.
