Join the movement to clean up our communities and keep recyclables from the landfill & litter from
our waterways. It's estimated that 75% of the waste in our waterway come from land sources.
Every year, 11 million metric tons of plastics enter our oceans on top of the 200 million tons that
circulates in our marine environment. When marine life ingest litter, it can cause internal
and external wounds, blockage of the digestive system, decrease mobility, and toxicity.

Litter Scout, a local conservation group with the goal of inspiring, organizing, and engaging youth
about litter and its impact on waterways. Additionally, the LitterScout App is a new approach to
litter reporting & managment. The LitterScout App allows you make  a difference by allowing
everyday citizens to report litter. This crowsourced information, posted online, can also help
individuals, student groups, organizations, or cities focus resources where it's needed most.

Trash monitering to understand where the need is. This can help us establish
patterns to combat trash before it ends up in our strom drains and waterways.

Reporting litter, Organize a clean-up, and Engage in a clean-up.
