11,361 Pieces of Trash Picked Up in One Month!
For Coastal Cleanup Month in September, my sister and I partnered with Litterati to organize Skip the Plastic Straw's first-ever Global Virtual Cleanup Challenge! We are proud to announce that from September 17 to October 15, we had a total of 76 participants from all over the world who joined, like the USA, Netherlands, Spain, Qatar, Philippines, Pakistan, Africa and Singapore! (see map below) In just one month, we picked up - and documented! - a total of 11,361 pieces of trash! We blew by our initial goal of 5,000 pieces of trash and even past the revised goal of 10,000 pieces of trash. We are super thankful and honored for the partnership with Litterati during this challenge!
