Submitted by the Event Organizer
Join up for the first official Monthly MOOP Troop. MOOP (n, v) Matter Out of Place.
“This term was coined at Burning Man, to support the event’s Leave No Trace principal. The idea is simple: If it’s on the ground, it doesn’t belong there. It may not be your rubbish, but it is your home. Let’s help mama Earth by picking up after our messy brothers and sisters. This has been running as an annual event since 2011, and is now turning into a monthly happening to encourage and empower humans everywhere to be active and aware of their home planet.”
Flash Mob Theme: Super Heroes – Get out your spandex and eye masks to save the bay, one gum wrapper at a time.
A few things to know: Meet at Downtown Berkeley BART at 2 pm, with or in costume* Grab a bag, a route, and a pair of gloves (or bring your own), then head into town. You can join for as long as you want; every little bit helps. Meet at the UC Berkeley campus lawn at 3 pm (off Oxford, at Addison) to sort garbage goods, wash hands, and enjoy some tasty treats in the sun.
Bonus – Creative Challenges (bring your photo-takers) (1) Matter most out of place (2) Extreme MOOPing (3) Best MOOP Moment (4) Original Art, made of MOOP
Can’t Come? No worries! You can still participate. This is a monthly global event. Wherever you are on last Saturdays, just keep your eyes open and your grabbin’ hands ready. With every scrap you gather, you are sharing a positive intention with people across the world. It’s pretty neat.
