Using the App
Do I need a data plan to use the APP?
No, you can upload images from your own gallery to record your contribution.
Why are there multiple duplicates of the same image in my Gallery?
If you added a photo with multiple pieces of litter that you have logged all at once, the photo will appear a number of times in your gallery depending on how many pieces of litter that was logged.
This is a great idea, but I don't have a lot of time to commit
I pick up trash and live sustainably already. Why should I use the APP?
Great, we are glad to know you are doing your part. By using the APP you would not only record your own progress, but you help us update statistics that can be viewed by people worldwide. This helps us raise awareness and influence people worldwide to live an environmentally sustainable lifestyle.
How can I pick up litter everyday if Iive in a litter-free neighborhood?
The ultimate purpose of our APP is not to find more litter, but rather to encourage people worldwide to keep our planet clean by raising awareness.
How can I log my progress without contaminating my phone?
We understand controlling hygiene is important, so we have prepared a forum for users to contribute cleaning and logging tips. Check it out here.

How can I support OnePieceADay and its cause?
What makes OnePieceADay unique from other organizations?
OnePieceADay works on the basis of getting everyone around the world to make contributions, so that collectively we make a difference.
How else is OnePieceADay tackling pollution problem?
OnePieceADay organizes community clean-ups, as well educate school children about pollution and the effects of single-use plastics. By doing so we have inspired schools to ban single-use plastics in their cafeterias; and met many children who felt inspired to organize clean-up activities.
What are OnePieceADay’s next steps into encouraging others to live a minimal waste lifestyle?
We began as an app that encourages users to remove litter. A primary culprit of the trash we come across on the street is single use-plastics, which later led us to introduce the Refuse feature. Since then we have given talks at schools, and even inspired some to ban single-use plastics in their cafeterias. We will continue to give school talks, but ultimately we aim to reach out to the entire community; including industries currently using a lot of foam/plastic packaging, or other forms of single use plastics, in hope they will adapt to a more sustainable practice.
