Grab A Bag SC is a statewide litter pickup challenge inspired by Lt. Governor Pamela Evette’s own experience picking up in her home community and even during her family vacations. It encourages South Carolinians to grab a bag, rally friends and family, put on safety gear and head outside for a chance to enjoy the outdoors while making a difference in their communities.
This annual campaign kicks off every fall with a press event, followed by a litter pickup in the surrounding area. Citizens across the state are encouraged to go out and do the same on that day – grab a bag and pick up litter.
Litter pickup events are a great way to build relationships among families, neighbors, employees and elected officials. This is an inexpensive way to improve the esthetics of neighborhoods because litter is considered a gateway crime that negatively affects quality of life and community safety.
We encourage participants to sign up for Grab A Bag SC in their own community by visiting PalmettoPride’s event page. Safety precautions are advised and can be found here. After you’ve picked up your bag, challenge three friends to do the same. Just tag them on your favorite social media platform using #GrabABagSC.
