Whether that is in a parking lot, in your neighborhood, a local park, on the trails or by the water. If trash is in the...

A Brief History of Wild Keepers

A Brief History of Wild Keepers

Way back before Keep Nature Wild was even a twinkle in the eyes of founders Cameron and Sean, they were organizing group hikes as Arizona Hikers Guide.

Cameron and Sean realized pretty quickly that these get-togethers were answering a need for community.  Keep Nature Wild was founded on picking up trash and creating community. Shirts were sold to help fund cleanup efforts. It turned...

In fact, the Waste Management reports that only 1% of plastic bags are recycled. The rest go straight into our landfills and oceans. 2. Rough estimate, but the people in the US use about 100 billion plastic bags each year. To put that in perspective, that many bags could circle the Earth 1,330 times....
