Have you ever noticed how much litter there is outside? Now is your chance to do something about it! You can use the Litter CleanUp app to document yourself picking up litter and get rewarded for it. Rewards are provided by Clean Planet Project Co. (a Colorado Incorporated Nonprofit) and our generous partners. Together, through picking up litter and encouraging more eco-friendly lifestyles, we can all make a difference for our planet.
The main function of the CleanUp app is to document yourself picking up litter. The first step is to find a piece of litter outside. Needless to say, this must be a piece of trash that neither you or anyone in your party placed on the ground. Open the CleanUp camera by selecting the large “CleanUp” button on the home page, or by clicking on the camera icon in the lower left portion of the screen. Center the piece of litter in the camera using the guided lines and snap a quick picture of the piece of trash. This image will be stored until you are ready to throw the trash away. You can continue to pick up as much litter as your heart desires, or just pick up the one piece!
When you’re near a trash can and want to throw away your piece(s) of trash, simply click on the trash icon in the lower left portion of the screen. You can also get to the “throw away” camera by clicking on the trash icon on the bottom left corner of the CleanUp camera page. Center the trash can (with your garbage in the screen) using the camera guides. Taking this picture will “throw away” your trash in the app! We will then process your submission to and award 5 points per piece of litter you collect. Please allow 3-5 business days for your points to be added.
Now for the other fun part! You can visit the “Redeem” page to exchange your points for eco-friendly discounts, or even turn in points to donate to another nonprofit! Browse through this page to find rewards sponsored by our partners and generous Clean Planet Project Co. donors.
Our focus is to make the app as clean and simple as possible. If you have any ideas for how we can improve the app or any of our processes, please don’t hesitate to reach out at [email protected]
Because we are a nonprofit, our development budget is very low. We appreciate your patience as we roll out new features. We are doing everything in our power to make the CleanUp app a pleasurable experience for all! If you want to learn more about what we do visit our website at https://www.cleanplanetproject.org/.
