Commit to take action with the Youth Leadership Council and #3T4E!

On November 1st EarthEcho International's Youth Leadership Council (YLC) will launch 3T4E, which stands for three pieces of trash for the Earth. On this day, the YLC will leverage social media to engage people of all ages across the world to pick up three pieces of trash, take a picture, and post it on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter with #3T4E and their location. The goal is to show how small acts can result in a major impact because EVERY little thing we do makes a difference! The YLC will track locations, recyclables recaptured, and litter diverted from our waterways to show how a small and easy act made by each person can become a huge act when made by many people.
