22 Jan Thank You for Participating in the 20th Annual CleanUp
There are so many people to thank we don’t know where to start: Volunteers at every site came out in record numbers and picked up an amazing amount of trash; all of our sponsors, who make the CleanUp possible by donating funds or products – Earthwise bags for donating the reusable shopping bags and being an amazing company with a great vision; volunteer musicians, photographers, and videographers making the whole experience fun and documenting it for everyone. And speaking of photographs – we have a lot of ’em! We’re still collecting and we will be putting them up online. Look for a re-designed CleanUp page, where each site has it’s own page, complete with photos from this years CleanUp. Here are a few photos, just to get you started…

The LA Times did us the favor of writing up a lovely piece, available HERE.
As soon as we get our CleanUp page re-organized, photos and volunteer counts will be posted, as well as the trash weights for each site!
