We Hit the 8 Million Mark!

Pieces of trash collected

Be a Part of the Movement

Launched in 2022 as a partnership between the National Wildlife Federation and Johnson Outdoors, the Clean Earth Challenge is making a difference in communities across America.

Whether it’s going solo or working as a group, it’s as easy as picking up trash on your morning walk, at a favorite beach or local park. Volunteers have collected millions of pieces of trash and debris that litter our beautiful land, oceans, and waterways. From small towns to big cities, collective action leads to big results. 

Make the planet a healthier place by taking the Clean Earth Challenge and help us reach our next big milestone. Every piece collected counts!
