Coming Up: World Clean-Up Day

Tuesday, August 24, 2021  by qrelihan

Every third Saturday in September is World Clean-Up Day and just like Earth Day it is a worldwide event dedicated to making the environment a clean and beautiful place. To give you an idea of how big this volunteering event is, it attracts 2 million US and 21 million volunteers across the globe.

The official date of World Clean-Up Day is September 18th; however, it is encouraged to participate in clean-up activities throughout the entire month of September! World Clean-Up Day is our way of showing local communities that we care about the environment and are committed to keeping it clean. In fact, observing World Clean-Up Day is as simple as going out in your community and picking up trash.

Like how Earth Day events were run this year, World Clean-Up Day can be done on your own or you can participate in a virtual challenge with the company.  So, get your friends and family together to help clean up your communities!

Over the next few days, we will announce the virtual challenge/activity that we will be holding for World Clean-Up Day and there may be prizes involved, so stay tuned!
