N.C. Big Sweep is a 501c3 nonprofit whose mission is a litter-free environment. Since it was
founded 25 years ago, Big Sweep volunteers have retrieved the equivalent of almost 26,000
football fields five feet deep in litter. This is important because litter can last a long time in
our environment. Litter hurts people and wildlife. As litter decomposes, it leaches harmful
chemicals into our groundwater. People are injured by accidentally stepping on litter. It hurts
our economy when tourists avoid areas where litter is an issue, resulting in loss of tourism
revenue. Litter is deadly to wildlife that eat or become entangled in it, and once entangled,
they often attract other wildlife to the same hazard.
