Take personal action or organize your own event for your community with these sites.
Don't Mess With Texas: For thirty years, the Don’t mess with Texas campaign (along with a lot of our very famous friends) has taught Texans the real cost of littering. Whether the message appears on a billboard, TV, or a screen, we’re proud of our advertising and the impact it has had on helping reduce litter in Texas.
Grabbits: We are a social media driven community initiative advocating local action and stewardship towards trash. Our mission is to encourage, enable, and empower thought as well as behavior shifts towards our daily interactions with waste and sustainability.
If you are looking to donate please donate by taking action in your local community and sharing your own story and pictures with us on social media.
Groundwork Dallas: Groundwork Dallas is dedicated to improving the natural surroundings of the Dallas and beyond. We work closely with area citizens, like-minded organizations, and the city to help realize a vision of a safer, cleaner, and healthier environment. A healthy urban forest is essential for maintaining the quality of air and water in the Dallas metroplex. Come check out Groundwork Dallas and get involved with our fun and beneficial approach to a better quality of life, right in our own backyard.
Litterati: We're a global community that's identifying, mapping, and collecting the world's litter. Trash is everywhere. Soda cans, plastic bags, and cigarette butts litter the environment, choke wildlife, and threaten our planet. By combining technology, social awareness and data, the Litterati is tackling this ever-escalating problem one piece of litter at a time.
With geo-tagging, we're able to provide insight into problem areas and highlight the most active Litterati communities. Keyword tags on the photos help identify those brands and products that generate the most litter. We'll use this to work with companies and organizations to find environmentally friendly and sustainable solutions.
This planet we call home is a big place to keep clean. We all need to play our part. Join us.
Recyclebank.com: Recyclebank partners with municipalities to create a reward system for citizens who recycle. The more a person recycles, the more points they earn. While the City of Dallas does not currently work with Recyclebank, you can still join and earn points by learning about recycling, sustainability, climate change, and much more by watching slide presentations, taking online quizzes, and reading articles. Earned points can be used like cash to receive discounts on online shopping or can be donated to charity.
ReverseLitter.com: Reverse Litter is bringing awareness to the consequences that littering can have on Metroplex waterways. Join us in the movement to clean up our communities and prevent litter from clogging and polluting our waters.
Clean the World: Clean the World was founded in 2009 by Shawn Seipler. As the Vice President of Sales and Marketing for an e-commerce technology company, Shawn traveled several days a week. The idea for soap recycling came about after Shawn learned the barely used bars of hotel soap he left behind each morning ended up in a landfill. That led to Clean the World, a Florida not-for-profit corporation under 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Find out how to organize a hygiene kit event here.
