Pick-up trash around your neighborhood

IMPACT – Why should you invest your time in this service project?

Litter can negatively impact your sense of community and harm our precious environment.While picking up a few pieces of litter might seem nearly inconsequential, it actually has a much larger impact. Every piece of trash you pick up is one less piece of trash that will end up in the ocean or in the stomach of an animal. It’s tangible, immediate, and it’s something easy you can do every day to make a difference and inspire others to perhaps view their immediate environment a little differently and show compassion for the space and creatures around you.


Conduct a neighborhood clean-up.  
Plan to pick up trash while on a walk or exercising.


April 19-25 is also the 50th anniversary of Earth Week so keep that in mind while engaging in this challenge.
