LITTERATI

Cleaning our planet one piece at a time

Trash is everywhere. Soda cans, plastic bags, and cigarette butts litter the environment, choke wildlife, and threaten our planet. By combining technology, social awareness and art, the Litterati is tackling this ever-escalating problem one piece of litter at a time.

The Digital Landfill is a photo gallery showcasing the different pieces of litter being picked up, and the overall impact of the movement. With geo-tagging, the Litterati is able to provide insight into problem areas and highlight the most active Litterati communities. Keyword tags on the photos help identify those brands and products that generate the most litter. The Litterati will use this to work with companies and organizations to find environmentally friendly and sustainable solutions.

Join the Litterati.

    Have you ever been to Iceland and/or Norway?… if not, do go, please! 🙂 NO trash anywhere! I was stunned, speechless…

      I travelled in Norway for a few months in 1990s and really enjoyed this beautiful country. Was very impressed with their recycling scheme with recycling bins everywhere and with supermarkets providing recycling centres and paying people for bringing plastic bottles. Would love to go back to Scandinavia one day – very beautiful part of the world.

        It seems that there’s a “floating trash island”(sic!) somewhere in the Pacific as big as Texas!… 😦

        I love Scandinavian countries, too… 🙂 While in Norway for the 2nd time, I also visited the wonderful Lofoten Islands(UNESCO-World’s Heritage) and did reach Nord Kapp-North Cape 2 years ago… 🙂

        Oh, speaking of recycling, I forgot to mention UNIQUE Japan where I’ve been 4 times… 🙂

        I’m not surprised to hear about that ‘trash island’ in the Pacific. I’ve met once a crew of yachtsmen who circumnavigated the world. They did say that they were shocked by a huge volume of trash the saw in the ocean. 😦
