Do the Trash Mob Dance

Created by the MBNEP and the Coastal Conservation Corps, the 'Trash Mob' utilizes the pop-culture phenomenon of a "flash mob" to raise awareness and encourage behavioral change toward reducing littering and Creating a Clean Water Future. Participants meet in crowded spaces and perform a 'spontaneous' dance to a catchy song, "Pick Up the Trash", with an anti-littering message.

    Despite years of industry regulations, litter ordinances, and educational advancements, our area's waters continues to be threatened by a variety of pollutants. While no single government, business, or organization keep our waters clean, together, as we all do our part, we can create a clean water future.
