Since its beginning in 2020, New Pioneers’ Earth Day Cleanup Challenge has been a virtual event that invited participants to perform a trash pick-up, take a picture, and then share it with New Pioneers for a chance to win a prize. 

This year, for the first time, we added an in-person cleanup event to the challenge! Volunteers joined New Pioneers board and staff on Thursday, April 21 from 11 a.m.-noon at the Farmers Market Depot to clean the surrounding area, including Road Run Creek. 

And, as in last year’s challenge, participants could do their own cleanup anytime between Saturday, April 16 and Saturday, April 23. 

Anyone who helped out at the Farmers Market, or did their own cleanup and shared pictures with New Pioneers was entered to win a package of sustainable living goodies. Cleanup pictures were shared on Facebook and Instagram or emailed to info@newpioneersfsf.org.

Big thanks to everyone who participated in our Earth Week events!
