Trash for Trees

Join the Trash to Trees Challenge 

Transforming Our World, One Bag at a Time This Earth Month! 

Celebrate Earth Day this April by cleaning your community!

Between 8-22 April, join us in removing litter from your community streets, parks, and beaches! 

For every bag of trash collected, we will plant a tree, turning today’s waste into tomorrow’s forests. 

 

The Challenge 

From the 8-22nd of April, we challenge you to keep a trash bag with you and clean up any community spaces that are in need! 

Why Join Us?

Every piece of litter you pick up helps prevent harm to our wildlife and ecosystems and contributes to a cleaner, healthier environment for all.

By joining the “Trash to Trees” challenge, you’re not just cleaning up; you’re laying down roots for future generations and making your community safer for all.
