- 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.
- If using cellphones is an option, 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.” Click here to watch a TED talk by the creator of Litterati, Jeff Kirschner. Extend the lesson to help students find ways of reducing, reusing and recycling.
