Beginning in 2016, #UNLITTER has grown from a passionate group of friends at the University of Florida into a global movement. Over the years, the #UNLITTER movement has impacted the Gainesville, Florida, community by spreading environmental awareness and positive vibes through cleanups, yoga events, and unique projects conceptualized by members.

Events are posted on our Instagram @UNLITTERUF and on the calendar found here.


We host monthly clean-ups around Gainesville during spring and fall, collaborating with other clubs who are interested in joining the movement. We also participate in removing invasive species from conservation areas on campus. If you are an organization in Gainesville and would like to work with us, click here!


Partnering with local yoga instructors, we host yoga events each semester to help our members connect mind and body. We welcome all experience levels, from those who have never set foot on a mat to those who frequent their favorite yoga studio.

#UNLITTER Bottlecap Mural

For over two years, members of the Gainesville community collected bottlecaps for a future #UNLITTER project. In October 2022, that project became a reality and turned into a mural hung in the main lobby of Gainesville's City Hall. The #UNLITTER Bottlecap Mural Documentary is now live.

#UNLITTER Thrift Gala

In November 2022 and April 2023, #UNLITTER and UF's Thrift Club Funky Formal collaborated to host a runway show and night-life event promoting sustainably-sourced fashion to support our environment. To learn more about the event, click here!

#UNLITTER Education

The #UNLITTER Education Program is dedicated to empowering the next generation with the knowledge, skills, and mindset needed to become environmental stewards. We strive to foster a deep-rooted sense of responsibility and inspire positive actions that contribute to a cleaner, more sustainable planet. Sign up to volunteer here. 


Here at UF, it is a popular trend to use plastic glitter for graduation photos, only to be left on the sidewalk and ultimately ending up in drainage systems that lead to local waterways like Paynes Prarie.

  • #UNGLITTER is a biodegradable alternative - let's motivate others to adopt sustainable habits and stop littering on our front lawn.

  • We collaborate with Greek life representatives and local photographers to raise awareness about the environmental impact of glitter and promote the use of sustainable alternatives.

Our goal: reduce the amount of plastic waste on campus and prevent it from harming our natural surroundings.
