Clean Earth Challenge

The National Wildlife Federation and Johnson Outdoors have teamed up to inspire people to get outdoors and take simple conservation actions to help clean up our planet. 

2025 EcoSchools U.S. Clean Earth Challenge Badge

We have already collected over 3 million pieces of trash and debris that otherwise would have littered our beautiful land, oceans, and waterways. This pollution has a devastating effect on the health of our ecosystems, wildlife, and our communities. By taking the Clean Earth Challenge, you can help improve the health of our environment.
