The Great Global Cleanup

Let’s create clean communities!

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, Earth Day Network is building Earth’s largest cleanup crew.

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. The Great Global Cleanup will be launched in cities across the U.S. for Earth Day 2019. Then, building on best practices and verifiable metrics from 2019, the event will be scaled up for global reach as we approach the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day, 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.
