- Why not organize a clean up on your school campus? The Schoolyard Cleanup Program developed by the California Coastal Commission provides curricular resources and tips for carrying out a successful cleanup while at the same time integrating Next Generation Science Standards.
- Check out the smartphone app Litterati that allows students to use their phones to catalog common trash they pick up and upload it into a worldwide trash dataset-in effect “crowdsourcing-cleaning the planet.” Check out a TED talk by the creator of Litterati, Jeff Kirschner. Extend the lesson to help students find ways of reducing, reusing, and recycling.
