Project PUT in Action for the First Time in Downtown Washington, DC on Sunday, 4/6/2014

In the pictures below, Eloise practices her own Project PUT by picking up trash all over downtown Washington, DC and putting the trash were it belongs in recycle containers or designated trash receptacles.

We found littered plastic shopping bags and filled them with garbage.  These are just a few of the many bags we filled.

Lots of people noticed the work and gave us lots of positive feedback.  Eloise wanted to make it a movement.

It would be much better if nobody littered in the first place.  But if there will be litter, responsible citizens can make their communities more beautiful (and help the greater environment) by practicing PROJECT PUT:  PICK UP TRASH AND PUT IT WHERE IT BELONGS (IN RECYCLE OR DESIGNATED TRASH RECEPTACLES).

HAPPY PUTTING!
