End Plastic Pollution

The Great Global Cleanup®

The Great Global Cleanup is a worldwide campaign to remove billions of pieces of trash from neighborhoods, beaches, rivers, lakes, trails, and parks — reducing waste and plastic pollution, improving habitats, and preventing harm to wildlife and humans. This program aims to continue clean ups every day of the year for a brighter, greener, and cleaner planet.

Why participate in the Great Global Cleanup?

A partnership with The Great Global Cleanup means you will be involved year round in the work our organization does. You will have a platform when Earth Day comes around each April. This will mean a partnership with our activities for World Cleanup Day and engagement with partners such as Let’s Do It World, National CleanUp Day and Keep America Beautiful. We are forming a coalition of like minded organizations and individuals committed to achieving our mutual goals of protecting our environment through community outreach and networking.

You have access to the digital global map that showcases your cleanups and allows you to view cleanups globally. You will also have access to toolkits, cleanup competitions, participation in social media campaigns, access to tailor made toolkits, and be able to participate in webinars and Earth Day Live sessions.

Individual or organizational efforts can be amplified on our website and social channels through storytelling, sharing media content and showcasing best practices and success stories.
