Summer is fast approaching in Bushwick, and as the streets fill with people emerging from our cool, rainy Spring, they're also filling with something else: trash. This week, we sit down with the leaders behind Clean Bushwick Initiative to unpack the surprising ways they’re reimagining how the community can keep the neighborhood clean and livable for everyone.


Our sincere thanks to Nicole, Kristen, Debora and all the volunteers who help keep Bushwick clean. You can find out more about Clean Bushwick Initiative at their website,, and follow along on their instagram, @clean_bushwick_initiative.
