National CleanUp Day was created by Clean Trails, a US based 501(c)3 non-profit. National CleanUp Day was officially proclaimed in mid-2017 and our inaugural event was held on September 16, 2017. We partnered with many Keep America Beautiful affiliates, companies and individuals with a total of 225,000 participants.

For 2018, we have partnered with Keep America Beautiful nationally and most affiliates are holding a cleanup on September 15, 2018. We just partnered with the Ocean Conservancy and Earth Day for 2018 and expect to have more than one million volunteers from around the country.

Also in 2018, we have partnered with Let’s Do It World who is hosting the first ever World CleanUp Day. 150 Countries and millions of participants.

2019 will expand our partnerships and outreach significantly and our goal is 5 million participants.

Thank you for all you do to make the world a better place!

Sincerely,

Steve Jewett

Volunteer Spotlight:

Joe Forish

Meet Joe and the Clean Trails Team

1d08f1b9-fada-463d-a68b-f9831bf2ad98.png
We all want to keep our outdoors looking great!

Clean Trails is an all-volunteer organization that aims to increase community involvement through education and action. Our team consists of many talented people, all dedicated to contributing their skills and passions toward a grass-roots effort.

This month, we recognize Joe Forish, our strategy and fundraising expert from New York, NY. Joe grew up in the Pocono Mountains and developed an appreciation for the outdoors at a very young age. Now he works as an equity analyst in Manhattan and enjoys getting outdoors every chance he can. His personal mission is to raise awareness among fellow hikers, so that they too understand the benefits of picking up litter while out on the trail.

There are dozens of ways you can get involved too!

Please contact us to learn more.

Trail Talk

When many do a little, much can be gained.
Our grass roots efforts continue to grow. In the last month we have done awareness and maintenance events in the San Diego, Salt Lake City, and Denver metropolitan areas. We are working to schedule more activities in those areas and grow our presence in 7 others across the west and in New York City. Consider joining us in developing a nationwide network of trail stewards to keep the more than 50,000 public trails across our country as pristine as nature intended.Highlighted Activities

  • One of our favorite activities is cleaning up an area. In the above image, our Utah State Coordinator, Nate Hawkes organized a clean up activity along the Bonneville Shoreline Trail, in Provo Canyon at Canyon Glen Park near Johnson’s Bowl. His crew of 8 collected an estimated 150 pounds of trash, enough to fill over a half dozen large trash bags of litter.
  • In Colorado, Clean Trails’ State Coordinator Lindsay Walton kicked off a collaborative effort with Jefferson County Open Space at Mt. Falcon, which is nestled in the foothills just west of Denver. Just a few hours of spreading our message of responsible recreation, netted close to a dozen prospective volunteers, while touching close to 150 people with our message.

Consider joining us in your area, we can help you get started building a community effort at your favorite trail. Remember that Litter begets litter, areas that are littered always get more littered, while areas that are litter free, tend to stay that way.

Congratulations to Brandon Reidhaar our Idaho State Coordinator! He’s been busting collaborative moves all over Boise lately. His latest effort was in coordination with the Boise Trail Heads, Idaho Hiking Club, and the Milestone Hiking and Recreation Club presenting at their event “Everything You Wanted To Know About Hiking But Were Afraid to Ask.” His presentation was well received garnering several new Clean Trails supporters while focusing on litter reduction while backpacking. Nice job Brandon! You can learn a bit more about Brandon and others on our management team here.

Many of us have not stopped moving despite the polar vortex and for others the winter thaw is still months ahead. Our Web/Blog Editor Tim Brown provides his thoughts on how to knock off some of the dust and start moving again.

“Now is the time of year when we end our Winter hibernations. We begin our thaw for the year that lies ahead (sorry, Boston). We knock the dust off of ourselves and start moving again. For some, this time of year is a rebirth; for others, it signals metamorphosis or change. For all of us, it means more sunshine and increased outdoor activity. Forget what Punxsutawney Phil said, Winter is on its way out; Spring is on its way in! (Again, sorry, Boston.)” Read More Here…

“To stay rooted- to remain humble, to appreciate family, and to connect with our beginnings; to embrace the journey that brought us here.

As the number of visitors increase and the amount of wild spaces decrease, the areas traveled receive more concentrated exposure to impact from humans. This inevitably leads to an abundance of litter on our trail systems, whether as a result of accidental loss, an uncaring individual, or an uneducated public. Together we can turn that around.
