I still remember that every Sunday when I was a kid, I used to join the cleaning event with my neighbors. That was such a nice community event for kids. But now, we, as adults, don't pick up trash any more. Even when we noticed it on the street, most of us just ignore it. How sad it is! This app PIRIKA is the good for those who lost their motivation or passion to clean the public space.
Here is the official video.
It's simple to use. Pick up trash, take a photo, and upload to PIRIKA. How easy!
This app is already used in all over the world as seen below.
Mainly used in the Northern hemisphere. I was surprised that some are using it in Africa. According to the official PIRIKA blog, total 50,000 trashes were picked up through PIRIKA. That means 1,500 trashes are picked up in a day all over the world. How nice!
I made a post on PIRIKA.
Picked up a trash, and made a comment as you can see below. You can also share on Facebook and Twitter.
Soon after I posted, I received "Arigato! (Thank you!)" comment. It made me so happy.
If there are any events going on in your town, you will get a reward from the sponsor. Usually, in the event, people work hard and pick up more trash than usual.
If you see your friend posts on PIRIKA, you can send them Thank you! comment.
How nice people rewarding each other through PIRIKA and the world gets cleaner!
