Here's just a small sampling of the projects we've conquered over the years.

 

Love Your Lake

This is our flagship project! Each year we set out to do 100 litter cleanups along the shores of Lake Ontario. We start in Niagara-on-the-Lake and work our way around to Kingston, Ontario having adventures with volunteers all along the way!

The Butt Blitz

Each spring coordinators across Canada gather volunteers to help pick up cigarette butts off the ground and hand out pocket ashtrays to smokers. After three successful events 447,544 cigarette butts have been picked up and sent to TerraCycle for recycling.

The great camino cleanup

On a 650 kilometre hike from Lisbon, Portugal to Santiago de Compostella, Spain Rochelle and Mike picked up 5,904 pieces of litter from the trail. This project was sponsored by Caminoways.com and inspired the Greenlife Fund, an annual award given to support environmental initiatives.
