I know Coach Matt posted last week about World Clean Up Day and my campaign to get as many people as possible to pick up just 10pcs of trash — but here’s friendly reminder that World Clean Up Day is Saturday, Sept 15th. 

Please consider picking up 10pcs of trash wherever you are. You don’t have to go down to the beach because honestly, there is trash everywhere! When you collect those 10pcs, take a photo before you put it in the garbage or the recycling bin and send it to me!

I want to make a collage to show what it looks like when a lot of people pick up just a bit. Email photos to diz@oakparkla.com or danette@crossfitla.com or text them to me.


Here are some trash, waste, and recycling stats:

*Approximately 43% of people in the U.S. admit to littering.

*Paper products make up 22% of the litter that’s currently out there, with plastics landing in third place at 19%. (Cigarette butts are #1.)

*According to a study done by the University of Georgia, 18 billion pounds of plastic trash winds up in our oceans each year. To put that in perspective, it’s enough trash to cover every foot of coastline around the world with five full trash bags of plastic…compounding every year.

*In 2012, more than 10 million pounds of trash was collected from beaches and waterways in 97 countries during a global cleanup effort.

*Over 100,000 marine animals die every year from plastic entanglement and ingestion.

*Although 75% of America’s waste is recyclable, we only recycle around 30% of it. Turns out, there are a few easy steps you can take to start recycling better.

*The United States throws away $11.4 billion worth of recyclable containers and packaging every year.

*The United States throws out the amount of office paper it would take to build a 12-foot wall from Los Angeles to New York City (2,794 miles).

*2,000 pounds (or 1 ton) of recycled paper helps to save over 350 gallons of oil, 17 trees, and a large portion of landfill space.
