Maybe your dog can fetch the newspaper or your slippers. But that’s nowhere near as impressive as what the dog in this video can do.

While your dog might be cute and smart and somewhat helpful, your pet probably isn’t trying to save the world. Let us introduce you to Paris, a 9-year-old boxer dog that goes out for walks in the town of Bodmin, England, and picks up as much litter as she can fit in her jaws.

That’s a pretty conscientious dog, if you ask me. Luckily, Paris’s owner, Fran Hodges, has started a Facebook page to record Paris as she does her life’s work. It’s where you can find posts like these.

So, cheers to Paris, the most environmentally conscious dog we’ve ever seen—unless this whole thing is just a ruse and Paris just wants a little beer during her evening strolls.
