Hate Litter? Join The #Litterati

Mar 11, 2013   |   Comment



Taking the time to clean the up littler you come always across deserves a pat on the back, kudos, props. And if you're doing your part, here's one way to collect on those accolades from like minded individuals, via The Litterati

According to their website, "Trash is everywhere. Soda cans, plastic bags, and cigarette butts litter the environment, choke wildlife, and threaten our planet. By combining technology, social awareness and art, the Litterati is tackling this ever-escalating problem one piece of litter at a time."

When you come across a piece of litter in your area, before disposing of it properly, snap an image of it with Instagram and add the #litterati hashtag to add it to their "Digital Landfill", which not only puts your good deed done on display, but also helps to keep track of the litter that's being found in their Statistics area (not a big surprise that Starbucks litter is one of the most commonly found items).



There's also a geo-location feature mapping all the places that The Litterati is making it's impact. It all adds up to another example of how social networking and apps can be used for a bigger purpose than just entertainment.
