Earlier this month, we kicked off our Plastic-Free Parks TrashBlitz campaign to collect data on plastic pollution in U.S. National Parks. We've had more than 500 pieces of plastic waste documented, but we need more data to compile an effective report that can inform policy.
That's where you come in! Anyone can participate at any national park through September, and you can help by:
* Registering, doing a cleanup, and submitting your data
* Sharing with friends and family
* Hosting a group cleanup
Register Now! ([link removed])
The next 15 volunteers who complete the below actions will receive a swag bag including a limited edition Plastic-Free National Parks tumbler ([link removed]) , a TrashBlitz pint cup, a reusable ChicoBag, and more.
* Register your cleanup ([link removed]) (if you haven't already)
* Submit national park data to the TrashBlitz research platform ([link removed]) with at least 15 pieces of trash
* Take a photo of your cleanup and share on Instagram (tag #PlasticFreeParks and @5gyres ([link removed]) ) OR email the photo to [email protected] (mailto:[email protected]?subject=I%20did%20a%20Plastic-Free%20Parks%20TrashBlitz!)
*Plus, everyone who submits data will be entered to win two tickets to Jack Johnson's concert in Los Angeles on October 1 AND a National Parks Annual Pass.*
Let's keep single-use plastic out of our national parks!
