As proud believers in reducing, reusing and recycling (in that order) and true nature lovers, the New Hampshire litter-picker-uppers proudly clean up New Hampshire and parts of New England one piece at a time. During every exploration, we are ready with our plastic gloves, litter bags and grabber handles! If you ever see a spot in the northeast USA, especially New Hampshire, that needs some spiffing up, please contact us at narrations@theknight.site!

On this page, you’ll hear stories and see cool photos of our explorations which will include beaches, lakes, trails, bogs, rockhounding, caves, castles, forts, ghost towns, old growth forests, back roads and plenty of wildlife like black bear and moose, plus much more outdoorsy stuff! New Hampshire holds so much beauty and history that we can’t wait to share it with you. This page will always be removed during moose hunting season.

About us

Every single time we are out and about, we clean up any litter we see. I personally have been doing this for over two decades now. Zoey, now five, has been participating since she was two years old and she loves it! We do it for Earth, our community and children, wildlife and all of nature. Our mantra in life is if you love it, let it grow so we do our very best to take care of our planet in all the ways we can. On top of reducing our carbon emissions, buying better and proper recycling habits, we clean up any trash we see during our explorations. This has many benefits for the soil, wildlife, future generations and mental health. It motivates others to use trash receptacles responsibly and encourages children to participate.

It was only in 2022 that we kept track of our litter hauls and we’d like to share our portfolio with all of you. We never post on social media (besides The INFJ Channel community page) or reveal our full names. We are simply the New Hampshire litter-picker-uppers. None of this is for attention or recognition. This page is simply to motivate others to do the same. Litter has such detrimental affects on all of us and our planet. Some of us are aware but the majority are not, and actions speak louder than words. It is our responsibility as advocates to promote a cleaner, safer home for future generations. One day, the world as we know it may not look or be the same. Let’s work together and plant the best seeds and tend the soil. Remember, if you love it, let it grow.

The most common question we get during litter hauls is “do you work here?”

When kids ask what we’re doing, they mostly always want to help!

The elderly are very appreciative about litter pick-ups and thank us the most

The most common items we find are: beer cans, cigarette butts, water bottles, bottle caps, doggy poop bags, snack wrappers and paper

Wherever we go, the parking lots are always the messiest

The most toxic trash is on the seashore right after the snow thaws and it starts to warm up (lots of flies and I’ve gotten sick once or twice after a pick-up)

We always celebrate Earth Day- it’s one of the holidays I personally hold dear
