Our Director of Science & Education Dr. Christine Figgener is the ambassador for World Cleanup Day 2020, the largest annual cleanup event that tries to mobilize 5% of the world’s population to go out and clean part of their communities, beaches, and outdoor spaces from plastic every third Saturday in September. The event is meant to raise awareness about the issue of plastic pollution in our environment and motivates people to actively combat pollution. Dr. Figgener joins the ranks of Dr. Jane Goodall and Jack Johnson, who have supported the event in the past.


This year’s event falls on September 19th and we hope that you will join us. You can find a cleanup event near you here facebook.com, or you organize your own cleanup within your social bubble. Don’t forget to post pictures on social media with hashtags #footprinthero#letsdoitworld #worldcleanupday. Always remember to social distance and wear a mask!

Stay safe and keep cleaning!
