MLK Spooky Sweep N Swap

Join I Love A Clean San Diego at the Martin Luther King Jr Community Park sponsored by Keep America Beautiful and Clean CA, for a morning of activities to celebrate Halloween and help us all be more sustainable! Join us at 9 a.m. for a litter cleanup around the neighborhood, and/or 10 a.m. for a Tote Bag Craft and Swap Party at the Park. 

9 a.m. – 11 a.m. Martin Luther King Jr Community Cleanup: We will be set up with a check-in table and cleanup supplies at Martin Luther King Jr. Park. Join us to grab supplies and help us cleanup to protect the neighborhood and benefit watershed protection through litter reduction! After the cleanup, you can get service credit in your Community Hub dashboard

10 a.m. – 1 p.m. Tote Bag Craft and Clothing Swap: Join staff in crafting your own sustainable tote bag made from upcycled t-shirts with an option to decorate them to be trick-or-treat bags! Bring last year’s Halloween costume and swap it for a sustainable fresh look! You can also update your wardrobe before the winter season and help divert textile waste from our local landfills, helping the environment by creating a circular economy! Bring your gently used clothing items to exchange them for other items at no cost. By participating in the swap, you will be helping to conserve natural resources, reducing the environmental footprint of producing new goods and building community

A few things to keep in mind: 

You can attend either or both activities – separate or together, whatever you have time and interest for! The cleanup will kick-off at 9 a.m. and the Tote Bag Craft and Swap Party will be kicking off around 10 am next to the cleanup check in station.
