From our friends at Puget Soundkeeper:
For Earth Month, the Puget Soundkeeper launched a Virtual Cleanup Campaign encouraging folks to incorporate a trash pick up during their routine walks, runs, bike rides, etc!
Participating is simple:
- Bring a pair of gloves and bag with you on your next outing. Doubled up paper bags recommended.
- Collect trash.
- Take a selfie or picture of the trash you collect.
- Post the photo on your Instagram or Instagram story, and tag @PugetSoundkeeper with the hashtag #PSKVirtualCleanup. For inspiration, check out these sample posts.
The Puget SoundKeeper will repost these photos of solo cleanups on their story to inspire a virtual community of cleanup heroes! Check out the Puget Soundkeeper Instagram for more #PSKVirtualCleanup photos.
