r/DeTrashed - Saving the only planet we'll ever have!
Our sub is best viewed on Old Reddit.
Want a flag next to your username? Of course you do! Check the 'flair' box above and then click (edit) to select your national/local flag!
This is r/DeTrashed, reddit's premiere sub committed to cleaning up the environment one piece of trash at a time. Please post anything related to picking up trash. Anything from picking up a bottle while walking your dog in the morning, cleaning up a campsite or even organizing a clean-up event.
Remember although this sub was started on just picking up trash and cleaning the environment, it is so much more. Please share anything that involves taking an active step to improve the earth, like cleaning up trash, recycling, removing invasive species, green improvements on your house, magnet fishing, clearing gutters, etc.! Be creative!
Keep in mind the main point of this sub isn't about bragging (although you are allowed to), it is about encouraging others to help out and get involved. Although some people may say our actions alone don't make much of a difference, when there is an entire subreddit dedicated to it and encouraging others, then we can absolutely make a difference!
To everyone who has been spreading this sub by mentioning it in threads and such, THANK YOU! We have grown so much since our creation and we hope to become one of the largest, most engaging subs on reddit because that'll mean more people are DeTrashing the earth than ever before. Please keep it up and continue to encourage others to stop by for a visit (or, hopefully, to stay!).

To anyone who was in the Chicago branch of DeTrashed, I believe the Meetup page got deleted due to the group not having a leader. If you try to look for the page, it doesn't come up anymore and says in my email it has been removed from the site.
If there's a plan to fix this, please tell. I heard that it costs money to keep a Meetup page running, so I think the group should move to Facebook.
Hi! I recently applied to this online research study for "a new online impact discovery & accelerator program, designed to help you find the cause, contribution type, and level that is just right for you!"
They're looking for "men and women, 25-55 y.o who are passionate about nature, animals & the environment but haven't decided how to really contribute yet."
It's paid (if you're accepted), but above all, it's for a good cause to help develop a new tool
The form will be closed before the end of Friday (in <48h)

We did a short loop around a local park. Since it’s Sunday night, a lot of the trees were left with tons of wrappers underneath from birthday piñatas, along with the regular trash. Someone even lost a windshield wiper! This park has a lot of trash regularly and I couldn’t stop noticing on my last visit. So today, I brought my grabber and my bucket and let my kid ride his scooter for a while.

Just a random Saturday thank you to the whole global deTrashed fam, but especially the deTrashed mods. Being a reddit mod is not an easy task & there are lots of weirdos & scammers & crazies lurking around always. But the deTrashed sub is full of good people doing real good in the world. And just wanted to take a moment to say Thank You!
Thank you for making this a welcome & safe space.
Thank you for making the world better.
A while back, I was wondering how much, in roadway length, would each person need to clean - if every 'able person' were to help clean up roadside litter.
One simple way to generate a reasonable response is to estimate the total length of roadway and the total number of 'able bodies'.
So I just asked Bard to get approximate numbers - and these were the two estimates and the one response number in roadway length that includes doing both sides of the roadway length:
Note that I got to the able bodied number by excluding kids 0-6 years old, the elderly 70+ and the estimated 15% of disabled persons.
The roadway estimate is both paved and unpaved.
Any other factors you would recommend including in this rough calculation?
What could you do instead where you can do something good on the side?
I have been cleaning this park for past year. I had some extra time yesterday to dig out some trash from the bushes.
Walked some streets I don't normally hit. It was a gold mine!

Thank you for making your part of the world a better and cleaner place!
It doesn't matter if you pick up one handful of garbage or an entire dumpster, your efforts are recognized and appreciated by someone.
