Litterati makes its way to a museum in the South Bay.


A few months ago, we profiled Jeff Kirschner, the founder of Litterati, whose fantastic yet simple plan of harnessing the power of social media to combat the problem of litter has started a global movement. In addition, Litterati is now also a a 24-piece art collection that’s currently on display at Don Edwards San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge in San Jose.

Jeff Kirschner was also interviewed recently on the Comcast Hometown Network. Watch below to learn more about saving the planet one piece of trash at a time:
