Founder of Litterati; TED resident

Jeff Kirschner

When his 4-year old daughter saw a plastic tub of cat litter in the woods, little did Jeff Kirschner realize that it would be the spark for creating Litterati - a global movement that’s “crowdsource-cleaning” the planet one piece of litter at a time.

Featured in National Geographic, Time Magazine, Fast Company, and USA Today, Litterati has become a shining example of how communities are using technology and data to solve our world’s most complex problems.

Jeff has shared the Litterati story at Fortune 500 companies such as Google, Facebook, and Uber, keynoted environmental summits at the Monterey Bay Aquarium and Keep America Beautiful, as well as leading schools including Stanford, MIT, and the University of Michigan. Jeff is currently a resident at TED, where he continues to make Litterati an “idea worth spreading.”
