We launched with a mobile application which inspires people to photograph and pick up litter. Each image provides a wealth of data including the brand (eg: Starbucks, Marlboro), material (plastic, glass), and object (cup, bottle), as well as a geotag and timestamp. With users in over 100 countries, our data is used to map problem areas, analyze local trends, and create transparency about the litter on our playgrounds, streets, and beaches.

Litterati empowers users and communities to identify litter they’ve seen and picked up, bringing high-impact visibility to one of humanity's most complex and challenging problems. Litterati has tracked over 2 million pieces of litter across all over the world in over 100 countries including the US, Netherlands, Australia, Spain, Korea and South Africa.
