Us:

Clean Trails ls a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization and community of people dedicated to keeping the outdoors clean. Study after study shows the highest indicator that someone will pick up litter is if they witness someone else picking up litter. That’s because peer group norms are more powerful than incentives, and when worked in concert with each other, they can provide impressive behavioral change impacts.

Core to our beliefs is the notion that people want to do the right things; all they need is a little encouragement or incentive. We believe that people are naturally responsible; if we encourage them to care for their favorite places, to pick up after themselves and others, then our communities will become self-sufficient, clean, and more enjoyable.

What would happen if everyone picked up one piece of litter for National CleanUp Day?

You're relentless and undeniably passionate about the volunteer work you do. No matter the circumstances, you get sh$t done.

Actively write the content and organize our seven interconnected websites.

Description

We’re a nonprofit organization aiming to become a nation-wide community of people dedicated to keeping our wild places and the trails that access those spaces free of litter.
