Auntie Litter, Inc., a national 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in Birmingham, is dedicated to promoting a clean and healthy environment. Founded in 1990, our organization has been honored with numerous awards for our innovative educational program based on the anti-litter character, “Auntie Litter.” Through live presentations, educational workshops, and comprehensive teaching strategies and tools, young people, their families, and educators learn how to conserve our natural resources, eliminate litter in our communities, and practice the environmental 3 R’s: reuse, reduce waste, and recycle.
The Auntie Litter approach makes learning about the environment fun, interactive, and lasting. Auntie Litter wants “to do for the environment what Uncle Sam has done for patriotism.” An Auntie Litter educator, dressed in a recognizable uniform of green, white, and blue with patriotic stars and stripes, can motivate people of all ages, socioeconomic backgrounds to take action in environmental protection.
Litter Prevention and Environmental Awareness
Currently Auntie Litter, Inc. is developing a curriculum for students in Kindergarten through fifth grade (based upon standards in the Alabama State Courses of Study: Science & Social Studies). This curriculum will highlight the “best of the best” lesson plans that have been developed by nonprofit educational organizations in the Alabama.
