The Literatti movement is cleaning up the streets, one picture at a time. Founder Jeff Krischner is trying to get people to take responsibility for the environment around them.

The movement is simple; take a picture of a piece of garbage, pick it up and throw it out and upload the picture to the Literatti website. The photos themselves range from being more amateur quick shots of garbage and some actually look like artistic pieces of garbage gathering art.

The movement definitely has legs as since the inception, it has gone from simply Jeff taking photos of garbage in San Francisco to over 30,000 photos of litter, which would equate to just as many pieces thrown out. That's how you take your environment's well-being into your own hands.
