Start in Your Own Front Yard is a Pilot Program with the goal of strengthening neighborhood’s and creating a culture of conservation and respect for life on land and in the water. Cleaning up the litter and reducing it at its source is the first step. We accomplish this by conducting clean-ups, and auditing everything we pick up so that we can identify what the sources are, so that we can find solutions. We partner with The Junkluggers, Garbo Grabbers, MowGreen, Product Stewardship Institute, the Town of Fairfield, environmental organizations and local haulers to manage all materials responsibly. After the pilot is complete, the next step is take Start in Your Own Front Yard to other neighborhoods and towns in the region so we all can participate in keeping litter and plastic out of the Long Island Sound.
