Advocating For A Cleaner Neighborhoods & A Leaner You
Lean and Clean is an organization advocating litter and garbage picking in neighborhoods while you take a walk. We encourage you to be proactive instead of reactive and pick up trash daily to keep your neighborhood cleaner. Our program encourages you to participate and clean up the surroundings in a fun way.
During the course of the year, we pick up nearly 1000 pounds of litter. If we had 1000 people doing the same thing, we’d be picking up one million pounds of litter in just one year. The easiest way to clean up the river is to pick up the litter before it gets in the river.
- We believe that picking up litter every day is less stressful than doing one annual clean up dealing with tons of garbage.
- Lean and Clean intends to make garbage cleaning a part of your everyday lifestyle.
- We want the environment to motivate you to walk and be proactive about keeping it clean.
- We have been promoting the benefits of preventing litter while walking for more than ten years.
