Be Part of the Largest Environmental Volunteer
Event in History
In honor of the 50th anniversary of Earth Day in 2020
In collaboration with partners across the nation and the globe – including National Cleanup Day, Keep America Beautiful, World Cleanup Day and Let’s Do It World – Earth Day Network is building Earth’s largest cleanup crew.
The Great Global Cleanup™ was launched in cities across the U.S. for Earth Day 2019. The Earth Day 2019 Cleanup brought together over 500,000 volunteers in 5,300+ events spanning the U.S, Canada. In India, a landmark citizen-led cleanup of the iconic River Ganges was launched encompassing over 100 riverside cities and towns.
Building on best practices and verifiable metrics from 2019, the Great Global Cleanup™ will be scaled up as we approach the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day in April 2020, kicking off the largest coordinated environmental volunteer event in history.
Through our unified campaign including mobile registration, digital mapping and social media, we will connect partners and participants around the globe to remove billions of pieces of trash from our green spaces, urban communities, and waterways. Data collected by participants will help build a better understanding of the sources, scope and solutions to the problem.
Earth Day Network is:
- Advocating for policies that reduce pollution — from global to local
- Reaching people everywhere to take individual actions that reduce waste
- Organizing massive global cleanups for April 2020
Let’s create clean communities!
Improved health, strong investments and positive growth can be achieved once people gain the expectation that their community will be clean.
