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
