About Trash Bash

Trash Bash is a multi-organizational litter removal effort spread across many project locations throughout the greater Des Moines metro. The event kicks off at noon at Cowles Commons in  downtown Des Moines. Volunteers are invited to enjoy lunch, music and educational booths before meeting with their organizations to head to their project locations. Earth Day Trash Bash 2019 is presented by The City of Des Moines as an opportunity to give back to our community.

About Earth Day

Earth Day celebrates the environmental movement of the 1970s. Proposed by Gaylord Nelson as an environmental teach-in opportunity, the date was intentionally chosen between spring break and final exams to increase student attendance. The first Earth Day, April 22, 1970, had over 20 million Americans take action in support of a healthy and stable environment. By 1990, Earth Day became a global phenomena.

Be a part of a larger movement for Earth Day 2019 and take action.
