Tracking the Trash

Litterati is a mobile app that’s geared toward making trash pickup a community event. It’s now easier for people to collaborate their efforts to pick up trash, upload their pictures to the collection, and categorizing litter with more tags.

There’s plenty of times where we’ve walked past cans, bottles, and bags that are scattered all over roads and sidewalks. Litterati provides a way for anybody to take a picture of it, tag it, and throw it away. The idea is to create a global database of what’s not being disposed of properly to gain a better understanding and to make these products more sustainable.

So far, over 1.3 million pieces of trash have been tagged on the app. The Sustainable Poolesville Team has started a group in Poolesville. Join in and invite a friend!
