Litterati At the Library!

Join New Bern Library and Sound Rivers on Saturday, July 22 at 9:30 a.m. for a new crowd-sourcing version of litter clean-up and prevention.

First, participants will download the Litterati app, so bring your smartphone along with reusable water bottles and gloves. Second, we’ll use the camera and Litterati app to geotag the litter we pick up. Then, we will reunite at the library and look at what kind or brand of litter creates the most trash in our neighborhoods and parks.

Litterati developer, Jeff Kirschner, hopes to use the data he’s collected to work with brands and organizations to stop litter before it reaches the ground. We can do this locally as well.

Come out and join the movement to build a cleaner world!
