Our aim is to restore the natural beauty to the greater Tampa Bay area, which requires local initiative. With the help and support of individuals, corporations and governments all over the world, we aim to realize the mission and work towards a future where litter opens the door to opportunities opposed to problems.
THROUGH CLEANING OUR ENVIRONMENT
Every year, billions of single use items are created and used all throughout the world. Nearly 30% of that waste turns into litter which pollutes our lands and oceans which can be very problematic for all life on earth. If we do not act now, this waste will only continue to accumulate and negatively impact our ecosystems, economies, and our individual vitality.
WE AIM TO CLEAN, BEAUTIFY AND EMPOWER THE GREATER TAMPA BAY AREA
The Clean Lands Project is a registered Florida organization working towards revitalizing our local communities. Our goals are to remove 100,000 lbs of litter, plant 100,000 trees, provide 100,000 meals to (those in need/the hungry), help 100 local residents start their careers, and assist 100 people out of poverty/homlessness, while remaining carbon neutral. In order to achieve these objectives, we will be working with other local organizations to attain the necessary resources to do just that. Once we have achieved our goals, we plan to expand our efforts outside the Tampa region.
DEVELOPING CIRCULAR ECONOMIES
The Clean Lands Project is deploying methods for turning trash that we find during our cleanups into items with a greater purpose and higher perceived value. We have begun with turning old clothes into tote bags and adding our own unique designs. This is just the beginning.
GAMIFYING THE CLEANUP EXPERIENCE
The Clean Lands Project is getting ready to launch its first NFT project that will allow for holders to control the amount of litter that we pick up over the next year. Each TCLP Token NFT that is minted will account for 4 lbs of trash that we will add to this year’s Trash Cleanup Goal.
CLEANING THE GREATER TAMPA BAY AREA
The Clean Lands Project and its respective members have vowed to pick up at least 1 piece of trash every single day to promote a cleaner environment and demonstrate how easy it is to make a difference. Outside of our daily delittering, we have partnered with Keep Pinellas Beautiful, Keep Pasco County Beautiful and Keep Tampa Beautiful to organize our monthly community cleanups to get all of Tampa involved in the process.
The first trash cleanup was originally inspired by a Twitter post, which depicted 4 individuals who took photos: one of them sitting in piles of trash and another with the litter now bagged and stacked up around them. This is where it all started.
