With constantly growing database of items and a forum for all your questions, the Cleaner Together App is your go to source for all things green. But this is only the beginning as there is much more to come.

Home Page
The home page is a sleek and user friendly view which contains links to every aspect of the app such as Which Bin and the forum. The page also includes direct access to out social media profiles and a counter that displays in real time many of the issues Cleaner Together is trying to resolve. Along with this, there is a drop down menu which will link to some of the main information on this website about Cleaner Together such as the About Us page, the Learn section, the Contact page, and the Projects section.

Which Bin
Which Bin is a constantly growing database of items where anyone can go to find out if there item should be recycled, composted, or simply thrown away. You can search for an item manually or use our powerful search bar. However, what makes our app different from other similar ones, is that we allow users to add items and there recycling info. And while this information is thoroughly reviewed for errors, this feature allows our database of items to grow at an exponentially faster pace. Be sure to look out for future updates to this section of the app where we will look into adding a scanner so you can simply scan the item as well as more specific recycling information based on your zip code.

The Cleaner Together forum is a large and easy-to-use database of questions others have asked along with ability to add your own questions. On each question you have the ability to up vote or down vote questions based on how helpful they are so the questions can also be more accessible to others. You can also easily answer questions and others can reply to those answers as well. In the future, be on the lookout for a social media aspect in this section which is more to post interesting ideas you have had or things you have done to related to Cleaner Together.

Hi everyone! Thanks for taking the time to have a look at our page! We really appreciate the opportunity to get our simple environmental message and philosophy out to as many people as possible and the Good News Turtle has generously provided this platform to do so! So....let me quickly explain...... bhassexplore was formed in march this year as a fully inclusive collective and cooperative to deal with a major and shameful forty plus years build up of plastic trash and synthetic materials beneath the majestic chalk cliffs at Beachy Head in East Sussex in the UK..... Hence the name bhassexplore.... Beachy Head And Seven Sisters Extreme Plastic Objects Removal...... catchy hey! Anyway..... If you please visit our website the whole story of how a group of environmentally conscious individuals have their time and labours freely to achieve the near impossible task of removing 6TONNES of human made garbage from a remote tidal marine environment strewn with rocks and boulders and prone to cliff falls!
Well...... having achieved that without incident and permanently removing plastics that would have broken down and returned into the oceans for hundreds and hundreds of years, l, WarmNorm the founder of bhassexplore..... decided to try to inspire as many others as possible, on top of the great work already being done, to get involved in plastic trash clear ups and have FUN! whilst doing so by wearing green socks and using the #greensockmovement hashtag to document their activities on our social media sites...... Simple! And now all that remains is for more and more people to take up my invitation to pull on some green socks and join us and to hashtag their environmental activities #greensockmovement and to visit all of our social media sites and share our GOOD NEWS STORY far and wide..... Many thanks for reading my ramblings.... Hoping some pictures will go up soon.... Love to you all... and ..... peace!

We have been so shocked and inspired by Sir David Attenborough's latest film that we've upped the anti to increase our contribution to rewilding this planet.

Saving forests and planting trees is one of the simplest and most cost-effective ways of reducing CO2 in the atmosphere to tackle the climate crises. Trees are incredibly efficient machines that suck up atmospheric carbon and turn it into a solid form, using free energy from the sun to lock it away. Not only do they capture carbon, they provide essential habitat for many species, and realse oxygen for us to breath, bonus.

If you haven't already seen this finely crafted documentary, do your self and the planet a favour and do so. It is THE one film all humans MUST see.

Green roofing can drastically alter the way buildings function in cities. Installing greenspace on rooftops can prevent water runoff, insulate the building better, create a habitat for wildlife, and cool down the city if implemented in a large-scale way. Attached are several videos of this most excellent concept!

Music has always brought people together... In different situations, music can bring upon a number of emotions. Different genres can be used to create an atmosphere around an idea or experience. Music can comfort us, and encourage positive social happenings.

Where Music Carries Us has been steadily growing over the last couple of years and is proving these very concepts. That their music (and others) can foster leadership, community involvement, spread joy, support others, and encourage future musicians.

The current good deed is the Chamber Music project. The members of WMCU create weekly virtual events of recordings made by their network. We need music in these times... Please look into their work!

Current events have reshaped our world in many fashions. One major way, is in the educational experience. We are caught in a difficult space but must continue to innovate and grow through learning.

Check out their video and website!

Here is yet another example of how music can create a positive energy... In the linked video, Adam Sandler shows how to truly appreciate a friend even after they have passed; through a story, or song. In this case, the individual is Chris Farley.

Not only was Chris a good person, he brought joy to everyone around him; and everyone who watched him. The song remembers the man in a personal way, in hopes that the crowd can respect him in a familiar light. At the end Adam asks the crowd to make enough noise so that Farley may hear them (even in an other world). Clearly, the audience was moved greatly by the "Great Chris Farley" tribute and his legacy!

If you haven't seen the clip I encourage you to take a few minutes and lighten up your day :). Peace and Love

The global energy system must one day become sustainable, using renewable technologies to power our world. If you are new to the major systems we are currently using to make this transition happen, the link below will be a great place for you to start.

Its not just electricity we need to figure out though. A sustainable and environmentally neutral food system is necessary, we need clean water for 100% of people, and our transportation system needs an overhaul. Now, thankfully, some companies and/or organizations are doing this already. Attached are links to only a few groups aiding us on this journey!

Have you ever felt an increase in mood because a song or artist is streaming through the airwaves and into your ears? I'd say yes, all the time; maybe i'm a little weird. But I don't think so, i think this truly happens often, to everyone, everywhere. With the internet and progress of music making technologies, its now more simple than ever; to create and share original music. So how does it affect our mental health?

Previously we would have concerts, parties and events with music; creating and celebrating unique social experiences. This was a very healthy thing for us all. Giving us a collective feeling in usually pretty positive ways. Can this happen on a personal level? I think so.

On September 15, 2009, Kid Cudi's "Man on the Moon: The End of Day" was released... i remember being lost and searching for my place in this world, and it was amazing to find that i wasn't alone.

I found an awesome article written last year, around this time, celebrating the album's 10 year anniversary. Follow the link below and see a true example of how music can capture, inspire, and even mentally support it's listeners; all mapped out in a creative way by Complex.

Thanks a lot, Scott!!!

Music has been around for a long time... i don't think anyone actually knows when (or what) was the first sound. Maybe there was music before the Big Bang, you know? Either way, music has been a part of human culture for what seems like forever.

At, we plan to enhance the market for musicians, artists, bands, DJs, and all members of the music industry. We are currently hosting online musical battles set up by the artists through their own dashboard; challenging one another. Allowing them to connect all social media platforms they may be using and accept fan made donations with only a PayPal fee removed.

Although it's not all about who is the best... however we do keep your voting and battle records for your enjoyment... It is more about supporting two (or more) artists in battle and gaining cross-exposure while fans discover new music.

As we gain partners and artists, we hope to create a network to connect the musicians to all aspects of the music industry more easily...

Share with your network and start something great!
