Partners in Pride

Our partnerships are an essential element to the success of PalmettoPride. Ranging from a national park to a statewide association, the commitment to a clean South Carolina leads us forward on a daily basis.

 

Palmetto Conservation Foundation and PalmettoPride teamed up in 2016 for the Great Trail Cleanup of South Carolina, our 2016 Great American Cleanup campaign. We enjoyed working together, connected with some great United Way businesses and we decided to keep our partnership going.

Camp Leopold is a school-year camp program that brings the students out of the classroom for a hands-on learning experience in the great outdoors. We sponsored the Human Impact course and helped educate students on how litter impacts the environment.


We know that many of our state’s high school students participate in community service activities, but a lot of these students don’t get credit for their efforts. Working with the South Carolina High School League, PalmettoPride helps school sports teams maximize their efforts and get kudos for doing it in the process.

The USDA Francis Marion National Forest is one of our longest standing partners in cleanup. We have been hosting an annual cleanup of the forest since 2006, which takes place on the first Saturday in February bringing in at least 300 volunteers.

Friends of the Edisto and PalmettoPride embarked on a joint venture aimed at cleaning up boat landings on the Edisto River. The Edisto River is the longest undammed blackwater river in North America spreading across 11 counties in South Carolina. FRED members, outdoor enthusiasts and other volunteer groups, were asked to commit to regular litter pickups at their favorite boat landing.

Walther Farms is a 3rd generation family owned business headquartered in Three Rivers, Michigan. Their Windsor, SC location hosts a variety of crops throughout the year. The farmers at this location also participate in events with PalmettoPride and Keep South Carolina Beautiful, such as Adopt-A-Highway and Adopt-A-Landing events.
