Litterati contains some of my most favorite things: puns, maps, data collection, Geospatial analysis, pattern observation, accountability and global connections. Add some animals on the platform and I’m sold (jk, the app is free).
This app allows the user to photograph litter, tag it and upload the information to the global interface. I’m not sure if you guys are aware, but “geo-tagging” is all the rage these days. Remember Pokemon Go? What a great month for the U.S.
Geotags provide insight into problem areas, while keywords identify the most commonly found brands and products. This data will be used to work with companies and organizations to find more sustainable solutions.
Most of us go outside. Most of us are on our phones. Match made in heaven. Next time you’re out for a walk, take some pictures of the trash you encounter and share it on Litterati. Then… throw that trash away obviously. Catch up on their data analysis on the blog!
We’re all just doing what we can, and I know we can all do this.

A teacher of mine in high school told my class to put up dividers around our desks and then passed out M&Ms to everyone. He asked everyone to organize them. After a few minutes he gets to my desk and sees that I have made a sun and a tree out of the colors I had been given. Laughing, he asked everyone to see how their neighbor had organized their M&Ms. Everyone had organized them into color columns or blobs. He points to mine and says “everyone does things a little differently, and we can all be right.”
