In addition to being a community eyesore, the accumulation of litter threatens the safety of human health, wildlife, and natural ecosystems. Keep Austin Beautiful (KAB) strives to clean, beautify, and protect Austin's environment through litter-prevention-and-removal efforts along with educational programs to encourage environmental stewardship.
Each year, KAB's staff and volunteers clean more than 6,200 tons of trash, debris, and other litter from streets and roadways, as well as an additional 250 tons of litter that has washed into waterways. The cleanup programs sponsored by Keep Austin Beautiful range from one-time volunteer opportunities to ongoing adopt-a-street or adopt-a-creek cleaning programs, and KAB provides supplies and safety equipment such as fluorescent safety vests, gloves, trash-picker tools, and garbage bags to participating volunteers.
Join G-Team and donate $10 to help KAB equip cleanup volunteers with necessary tools and safety gear. If G-Team members raise $500, KAB can purchase 250 safety vests, which will keep volunteers outfitted for an entire year. Each additional $8 raised will be used to purchase one trash-picker tool.
Unlike traditional Groupon deals, G-Team campaigns typically don't offer you a "discount" or "savings." So "buyer" beware—when you click "Buy" to donate your time or money to a worthwhile G-Team cause, the only discount you may receive is 100% off free, priceless karma. Read more about G-Team.
