One piece a day

A fitppl initiative to help combat litter.

The United States alone throws away 195 million tons of trash per year, that’s 4.5 pounds of trash per person per day. Not all of it ends up properly disposed of. People litter, trash trucks lose it, wind blows it, and the water transports it.

How is this happening?

Food packaging

Food wrappers, paper bags, cardboard boxes, newspapers and scrap paper make up 22% of the litter that’s currently out there, with plastics landing in third place at 19%. While littering can occur accidentally, it’s most often a deliberate act.

Done with intent

Approximately 81% of littering is done with intent, either by someone dropping, flicking or flinging the piece of trash in question. This leads to one big problem, 80% of plastic and trash pollution enters the ocean from land-based sources, resulting in 9 billion tons of litter in the ocean every year.

We all need to help

With so many people intentionally littering, we need a collective of individuals to help combat the problem. So that's you! It’s simple to join our initiative, make a personal pledge to pick up one piece of trash a day. Can you pick more than one piece a day? Hell yes you can. Bonus karma points.

The potential impact

If we can inspire 1% of the U.S. population to get involved, that’s approximately 3 million people a day. Equaling approximately 1.1 billion pieces of trash per year removed.

Small actions can lead to big change.
