JEFF KIRSCHNER, Litterati

I was walking through the woods with my kids and my daughter saw cat litter and said “daddy, that doesn’t go there.” That was the eye-opening moment for me and all that I saw after that was litter everywhere.

  • Cutting edge technology has started to bleed over into waste management
  • After starting Litterati, litter suddenly became approachable – it went from being the thing that I didn’t see to being artistic
  • The idea behind Litterati is to build a product and design an experience that is not only simple & seamless, but also makes people feel empowered that they can make a difference by one simple act
  • Litterati’s belief is that the best way to find solutions is by utilizing data
  • For utilizing data properly, Litterati needs to get to a sample size that is statistically significant. Once that happens we will be able to understand which community has bigger problems than others by using that data.
  • Just enabling a child to have a different experience with litter creates a whole new awareness beyond just picking something up.
  • It’s not hard to make a difference. You can start by picking up one piece
