EARTHDAY.ORG is teaming up with Let’s Do It World and Keep America Beautiful to support World and National Cleanup Day this Saturday, September 19th.
This isn’t a typical year for cleanups. COVID-19 has postponed most large-scale volunteer events, but trash in our environment continues to pile up. Now we are even seeing personal protective equipment such as gloves and masks littering the ground and washing into our rivers and oceans.
But you can help us act on trash pollution and do it safely. Either by yourself or with a small group of family, friends or coworkers, you can make a difference by cleaning up litter by your favorite park or trail. And make sure to register your event! You can visit our registration portal to show that you’ve participated in World Cleanup Day. <[link removed]> We have all the information you could need to do a cleanup safely — download our safety checklist!

And while you’re picking up litter, check out our Earth Challenge 2020 <[link removed]> app to record the composition and amount of trash that you collected. Every data submission, including yours, will help researchers track global litter trends as part of the biggest citizen science project in the world.
This pandemic has not stopped the pollution of our environment — and it won’t stop us either. Cleanups are still possible, and together we can make a real difference in the health of our planet.
