No, really. My friend-about-town Amy just forwarded me an email from Boloco. The local burrito chain is offering discounted "Summer Burritos" (Black beans, mango salsa, melted cheese, cilantro, rice) to patrons who bring a piece of garbage into any location today. Skeptical, I called the Mass Ave. store near Berklee, and the nice woman who picked up assured me it's true.
Throw the piece of trash out within eyeshot of staffers and you'll get the seasonal burrito for $3 (regular price: $5.25) or the large size for $4 (regular price: $6.25).
Though a warm-and-fuzzy feeling should be all the reward you need for cleaning up the environment, it's nice to get an edible pat on the back, too.
[Yours for the picking, kids.]
You know what they say: One man's trash is another man's cheap burrito.
