The best ideas are often inspired by nature. Mine came to me while I served as an SCA intern at Yosemite. SCA enabled me to understand the connection between myself and my impact on the land. Interning at Yosemite, I gained skills and grew my conﬁdence to the point where I could not only change my planet-harming behaviors, but help others change theirs too.
This video tells the story of how I founded Pick Up America with a group of friends, and journeyed from coast-to-coast, 3,672 miles, picking up 200,673 lbs of litter along the way.
