Clean Up America with Google Maps
Pick Up America is travelling coast-to-coast across America picking up litter. Their mission is to pick up trash across the country and, in the process, educate, and encourage a transition toward zero waste.
The Pick Up America homepage features a prominent Google Map showing the route of the clean-up tour, upcoming events, and links to blog posts about events already completed. The trek began in March 2010 and plans to finish in November.
This year in the spring the tour will be trekking the Utah and Nevada Desert, hiking over the Colorado Rockies in the summer and walking onward to the California coast in the fall.
