What is The Great Global Cleanup?

EARTHDAY.ORG (EDO) is focused on accelerating solutions to combat plastic pollution by activating governments, citizens, and businesses to do their part– everyone accounted for, everyone accountable. It’s YOUR turn to make a difference, starting with organizing or joining a community cleanup. Cleanups are a fun and easy way to amplify your impact on Earth Day and every day.
