helping cleanup our own backyard
We donated 18,000 trash can liners to help over 2,000 volunteers collect 35,000 lbs of trash and remove it from the LA River and its watershed.
During the Great LA River CleanUp 2021, simplehuman donated 18,000 extra-strong and durable trash can liners to help over 2,000 volunteers collect unwanted trash and litter from the LA River and its watershed, an important environment in our own backyard.
The largest urban river clean-up in the nation, the Great LA River CleanUp event removed more than 35,000 lbs of trash, packed out in simplehuman trash bags, old buckets, or whatever else volunteers had on hand, which made an outstanding impact to the environment. All of the liners we gave met our extensive quality standards, meaning that throughout the weeks of cleanup, no volunteer had to deal with a ripped bag due to spiky trash or stuffed bags.
