DoSomething.org's Don't Be Trashy Campaign

When you hear the phrase "Don't be trashy" you're probably thinking more along the lines of "Don't be a hot mess" or "Don't be slutty." While keeping it classy and not trashy is certainly a good motto to live by, try thinking about it in the more literal sense.

We live in a world of disposable everything. Cups, plastic bags, razors, boyfriends; you name it, you can find it in a disposable form. And although this makes our lives terribly easy, it also makes our landfills terribly full. By just being a tad more conscious of your recycling options, you can make a huge difference with relatively minimal effort.

Celebrate Earth Day with an Eco-Friendly Party

It seems pretty counter-intuitive to throw a party in honor of Earth Day (we've all seen college lawns the morning after a party), but what better way to bring people's attention to this important day and issue than by throwing a soiree? You can teach people a few things while having a good time!
