Your donation leads to success stories, innovative litter prevention methods, and the recovery of thousands of pounds of litter within our communities. 100% of donations go to a 501(c)(3) non-profit and are used to fund our clean water programs and field operations.
Litter clean-up costs are astronomical. Communities nationwide face the adverse economic effects of litter and pollution on a daily basis. From decreasing property values to tax money being allocated to clean-up efforts, it always has an expensive impact. Entities spend over $11,500,000,000 each year to clean litter across the nation.
Advocates for Clean & Clear Waterways is a 501(c)(3) organization based in Broward County, serving the communities of Central and South Florida. Founded in April of 2020, our organization is staffed by dedicated advocates serving our community. We focus on staff and volunteer litter clean-ups, water quality issues and testing, environmental education, pollution response, and other environmental concerns affecting low-income communities.
We work by mobilizing staff members and volunteers to beautify, clean, and protect our inner and coastal waterways, parks, beaches, neighborhoods, public lands, and other natural areas. While our primary response is by our team, we also host numerous volunteer clean-ups. We place an emphasis on the small pieces of garbage that typically go unaddressed, such as microbeads and microplastics, as well as hard-to-access areas.
In addition to our immediate radius of response, we accept litter and pollution reports nationwide. When incidents are within Central and South Florida, we respond and take the necessary steps to achieve a prompt resolution. With reports that originate outside of these areas, we assist the community in escalating the incidents to local agencies and organizations for a resolution.
