Our purpose is to unite those who don’t need to be told to stop littering. To symbolize and implement this we are selling stuff with our logo. By purchasing these items you will become authorized* to exercise your prerogative to pick up one or more pieces of litter a day. And, by actually engaging this prerogative, you are, in effect, voting for a clean society and helping to stigmatize littering. We hope that by making our logo ubiquitous it will empower people to not feel self-conscious if they want to clean up while waiting at a bus stop, for example. Moreover, people won’t look at you funny for picking up litter if you’re not the only one dong it.
We’ve also created Trash Mob to initiate clean-up events. For now it only applies to the Asheville area, but the goal is to make it international via Meet-Up Pro.
*products not actually required to exercise said authority.
“If I criticize somebody, it’s because I have higher hopes for the world, something good to replace the bad. I’m not saying what the Beat Generation says: ‘Go away because I’m not involved.’ I’m here, and I’m involved.” ~Mort Sahl
