Cleanup scavenger hunt: how to inject an element of entertainment and competition into a dirty job—picking up trash.

Why Should We Clean Up the Trash?

We all teach our kids not to litter. We keep our homes and our yards clean and try to keep our neighborhoods nice. But unfortunately, trash tends to collect, especially in public areas.

I’ll bet you can think of a place right now that’s looking nasty and neglected… Got one?

There are lots of good reasons to clean that place up. It may not be your job, but it is where you live and helping to keep it nice and safe will benefit a lot of people. Plus, volunteering to clean it up sends a great message to your kids. Maybe it will motivate them to clean up their rooms (or maybe not!).
