Keep Nature Wild in the Pocono Mountains
I am a first-time Wild Keeper Ambassador for the 2021 Spring term with Keep Nature Wild.
Keep Nature Wild is a clothing company on a mission. They sell ethically manufactured products with a purpose. For each product sold they are committed to removing one pound of trash. How do they keep the pound-for-pound promise? Each month thousands of Wild Keeper Ambassadors participate in an Impact Day where we get outside and make a difference and keep nature trash-free. To date, 393,234 pounds of trash have been picked up with a goal of 1,000,000 pounds picked up by 2023.
A Wild Keeper Ambassador is someone who gets outside and picks up trash, follows outdoor ethics, is kind to others, and explores responsibly. I am proud to join them on this mission and to keep nature the way it is supposed to be - wild!
How much impact can we really make?
If we work together, a lot!
Every year, nearly 30 million people travel to the Pocono Mountains to experience its natural beauty. Let's imagine that each of those 30 million people left behind a single soda can. In one year, our lakes, rivers, beaches, waterfalls, and streams would be covered in 28 million pounds of soda cans.
Now imagine if everyone who visited the Pocono Mountains picked up one piece of trash per day. during their stay. The impact would be incredible.
What else can I do to help?
Each of us plays an integral part in protecting and preserving our natural resources. Every time you go outside it is important to understand how your actions will affect plants, animals, ecosystems, and other people.
Below are a few ways you can Keep Nature Wild...
Note: Masks are required indoors and outdoors. When indoors, masks are required anytime you're with people outside of your household, even if you're socially distant. Face masks are required in all federal buildings and federal lands. Always check local guidelines before traveling.
