Xstream Cleanup is providing more ways for you to make a difference! A variety of events held throughout the year are replacing the annual, large-scale cleanup held in August.

That’s right. Now you can team up to clean up year-round! Check the list located on the right side of this page for links to great environmental events to get you moving. We’ll update this page quarterly and send an email to all our followers with upcoming opportunities—so subscribe by entering your email in the box above.
