Charles Village Clean-up Crew
To kick off Campus Sustainability, Homewood Recycling is teaming up with the JHU Office of Sustainability and Trash Free Maryland in a community cleanup event to address litter in Baltimore. The first Charles Village Clean-up Crew event invites JHU faculty, staff, and students to pick up litter in Charles Village the neighborhood adjacent to the Homewood Campus. So grab your friends and colleagues as we walk around our neighborhood, make it cleaner, get to know new people, and then celebrate our hard work with some delicious food.
Our partner, Trash Free Maryland is the leading advocate for public policies and initiatives to reduce trash pollution and litter in the state. Through their "Less Litter, B'More" campaign, they're looking to mobilize community members to keep their communities clean through consistent litter collection: whether it's on your way to and from home or work, or you plan weekly litter walks with coworkers, neighbors, family, or friends, we can each directly contribute to a cleaner city, and in turn, prevent pollution of our waterways. Data collected as part of this event will also support efforts to prevent litter through policy and initiatives with local and state governments, businesses, and industry. We hope this event will inspire the JHU community to mobilize regular clean ups among the friends and colleagues.
All tools and materials will be provided by Trash Free Maryland, the Baltimore Community ToolBank, and Homewood Recycling.
Lunch will be provided to all volunteers.
The event is free but registration is required.
