Palmetto Pride’s Grab a Bag SC 2020 campaign kicked off on Oct. 19 with a litter pickup event at Clemson University featuring Lt. Gov. Pamela Evette and the college’s Solid Green Club.
The statewide initiative, which will continue through Nov. 30, encourages South Carolinians to help clean up litter in their community, one a bag at a time.
“Getting outside and doing something for our community can make a tremendous impact on more than just our neighbors,” said Evette. “We want to encourage families and businesses to make it a part of their activities.”
In 2019, program participants, including SCDOT with their Fall Cleanup, picked up more than 116 tons of litter from the state’s roadways.
Participants are encouraged to sign up for Grab a Bag SC in their own community by visiting Palmetto Pride’s website.
Event organizers are also encouraging each participant to challenge three friends by tagging them on any social media platform while using the hashtag #GrabABagSC.
