On Friday, April 5, 2013, Founder Rob Greenfield and three of his associates went down to the Tijuana Estuary to pick up some trash. The Greenfield Group has committed ourselves to picking up a pound of trash for each “like” our Facebook page receives as part of our green cleanups initiative.

This means we are devoted to picking up tons of trash around the nation. Before this past Friday, The Greenfield Group had picked up roughly 500 lbs, far short of our 3,300 fans. On April 5th alone, the four Greenfield Group representatives helped to pick up another 200 lbs. We have a lot to go, but we will make sure it all gets picked up!

During this cleanup, no trash was brought or created. This means that all of the bags, buckets and containers used to pick up and transport the garbage we found on the ground at the estuary. Since Rob will be creating no waste during his upcoming cycling adventure across the country, it was good practice to only use the items found at the estuary.

This is the last of Rob’s trash pickups before leaving on his Off the Grid Across the USA adventure. During this trip, Rob Greenfield and his cameraman Brent Martin will be picking up trash as they go. Rob has devoted his life towards a green lifestyle, so it is a safe to say the roads to the east coast will be much cleaner after this cross country adventure than before it.
