Celebrate Earth Week by hosting a litter pickup

Earth Week Litter Pickup

Happy Earth Week from K-State's Pollution Prevention Institute

Earth Day is Saturday, April 22, and this year's theme is "Invest in Our Planet." The Pollution Prevention Institute is encouraging industry partners and colleagues to get inspired and take action by hosting a litter pickup at their facility during Earth Week, April 16-22.

You can limit the event to your own property or expand it to an adjacent lot, field or riverbank. Cleaning litter from the ground, such as in your facility's parking lots and storage areas, is the easiest way to prevent escaped trash from making it to the oceans.

View several tips to help organize this event and reduce escaped trash.
