Plastic Free Joshua Tree

Plastic Free Joshua Tree (PFJT) is an initiative to clean up the Mojave Desert. In January 2017 our staff and volunteers began reclaiming littered plastic bags and bottles/containers, as well as other recyclables from the desert. The items are recycled, upcycled or downcycled.

PFJT protects animals and habitat by;

  • Reducing landfill use
  • Reducing the presence of ground and water toxins from the breakdown of plastics
  • Removing balloons and other items animals mistake for food
  • Removing discarded plastics and food packaging from roadsides and areas that put scavenging animals in immediate danger
