Every Little Piece Counts

You may think
picking up
one piece of litter
not have
that much impact

It's just one piece, right?

But one piece. . .

. . . Can turn into a full trash bag soon enough.

And if we all
picked up
piece of trash. . .

. . .How much
could we
collect? Together?

Every Little Piece Counts

Join the All_Together Global Cleanup



A global initiative from the Alliance to End Plastic Waste (the Alliance) to remove litter from the environment, one piece at a time in celebration of World Cleanup Day 2020.

Beginning on World Cleanup Day, September 19, 2020, and for four weeks following, thousands of volunteers from the Alliance members, non-member organizations, and individuals around the world, rallied to their communities to discover, identify, collect and dispose of litter they found. Individual actions, collectively, have created a positive impact towards a cleaner Earth. Together with Litterati, the Alliance is committed to making the ALL_TOGETHER GLOBAL CLEANUP a long-term annual global movement. This will build on the great work that has been started in not only capturing waste, but also in collecting and learning from more data in our goal of having a litter-free world. ALL_TOGETHER and ALL_IN for 2021!

3,374 People Have collected 774,531 Pieces of litter

Cleaning Upfor Good

Waste collectors are critical to achieving circular economies and litter-free cities. Without them, we will be living in more polluted environments. The Alliance recognizes the important role they play and has chosen to highlight and encourage support from the participants of the ALL_TOGETHER GLOBAL CLEANUP to a collective of waste-collector charities. Join us in helping them through the COVID crisis.
