Littering is a pervasive and ever-growing problem for the health of our environment. According to the Keep America Beautiful Project, there are over 50 billion pieces of litter along America’s roadways. That’s 152 pieces of trash per American citizen! Furthermore, their landmark litter study states that waterways have more litter than roadways. As someone who takes daily walks along the Phoenix canal, I see trash everywhere, every day. We can do better.

This PSA follows four environmental enthusiasts as they pick up litter along the Phoenix canals, coupled with a littering skit and some littering facts.
