Family Clean Up Day!
Due to COVID-concerns, the Nashawannuck Pond Committee will not be organizing a City-Wide Clean Up Day event this year. Instead, we decided to get creative using Litterati, an app that empowers individuals to make a significant, measurable impact on the environment by picking up and documenting trash.
During the month of May we will hold the first-ever virtual Easthampton Virtual Clean up MONTH. Our goal will be to engage individuals and families to clean up neighborhood trash and document findings using the Litterati app. At the end of the month we will gather the data, sharing it with city departments and organizations, to brainstorm ways to mitigate future littering.
Please keep your group to your immediate family. This is not intended to be a time for group student activities.
The coronovirus may have closed our school buildings, but that doesn't mean we can't find interesting ways to engage our students in meaningful ways. Are you running out of creative ways to bring the classroom to your students while school is closed? Easthampton Virtual City-Wide Clean Up Month can help!
Charge up your smart phone, grab some trash bags and gloves, gather your family, and walk your neighborhood in search of litter. Let your student help capture the picture, name it (#sodabottle, #cigarette, #plasticstraw) and upload it to the Litterati database. Your litter will be geo-tagged and the precise location logged.
