We Hit the
3 Million Mark!
A big thank you to our Clean Earth Challenge volunteers for helping us collect 3 million pieces of trash.
Join the movement and take the Clean Earth Challenge! It’s as simple as picking up trash on your morning walk, at your favorite beach or local park. Or you can join with friends, family, neighbors, classmates and co-workers in a community effort to help make our planet a healthier, happier place.
Participants have collected over 3 million pieces of trash and debris that litter our beautiful land, oceans and waterways! This pollution has a devastating effect on the health of our ecosystems, wildlife and the planet.
Help the planet and join millions of others by taking the Clean Earth Challenge.
Every piece you collect counts!

You’ll find planning, prep and safety information, a handy checklist and ready-to-go graphics for email, posters and social media to get the word out and inspire people to sign up for your cleanup event!
Good luck on your collection journey!
