Let’s Talk Trash

Put an end to the cycle. Reduce. Reuse. Recycle.

Every day, the path of trash is destructive – littering Houston’s parks and streets, flowing through the storm drains to Buffalo Bayou, and finally dumping into Galveston Bay and the Gulf of Mexico – destroying beauty and wildlife along the way.


BBP is working towards a trash-free bayou with our Clean & Green Program.

What can you do to help?

  • Pick up trash in and around your neighborhood, even if it isn’t yours.
  • Use reusable bags when shopping.
  • Start using refillable water bottles.
  • Bring your own coffee mug to work. 25 billion disposable foam cups are thrown away annually in America.
  • Pack lunch in a reusable container.
  • Don’t purchase products with excess packaging.
  • Try reusable straws.

Special thanks to Richards/Carlberg for creating this important campaign.
