Litter Pirate 2020 litter count: 4,000+ gallons.
New and current Litter Pirate projects:
*New 'X marks the Spot' bags. Check out my mate in Texas running with the idea! -
*Donate your metal! Upcoming biker event - http://www.backroadbbqrun.com
*The blog is up and running-you're here!
*New short litter documentary video in the works.
*The 500 ft litter pick: picking a 500 ft stretch every 4 weeks and tracking what and when people litter. Will move to two weeks and less as the year goes by. The quest is for better data to aid litter law enforcement.
