Earth Day 2019 Clean Up
Earth Day Network + National CleanUp Day are coordinating clean ups across the US for Earth Day 2019. Join us!
During the month of April 2019, National CleanUp Day and Earth Day Network are working with grassroots organizations and community members to clean up green spaces, urban landscapes, and waterways across the U.S. With approximately 25 clean-up locations in each of cities — and opportunities to spread the action to communities nationwide — the Earth Day 2019 Clean Up will build an army of volunteers and make a tangible impact on waste in our environments.

Our Growing Pollution Problem
Pollution isn’t just a messy litter problem. The impacts of our mishandled waste are monumental — from poisoning our water sources to choking wildlife to increasing carbon emissions.
Local Solutions: Community Clean Ups
While the environmental challenges we face need global policy changes, pollution is something each person can personally address. Every piece of trash we pick up helps to clean up our communities.
So choose your city and sign up to volunteer! We’ve also got a Volunteer Toolkit to download, a Volunteer Badge, and prizes for winners chosen at random.
