Earth Day is a perfect way for us to demonstrate how everyday citizens can get active in their community and communicate the need for environmental sustainability
New York, NY (PRWEB) April 19, 2012
From April 19 through April 23, PublicStuff will host the #GetEarthFixed campaign on Facebook, Twitter, and their PublicStuff Blog by encouraging individuals and community groups across the Nation to get active in their communities by observing, recording, and submitting service requests to their local governments.
Tying in with Earth Day themes, PublicStuff will offer daily how-to tips using their mobile app to record issues along Earth Day walks/races, fairs, festivals, and litter clean-up days. In addition, PublicStuff will provide information for Earth Day event organizers on what to do prior to and after community activities using the mobile application. Beyond Earth Day events and activities, PublicStuff proposes community residents participate year round by joining local community groups and associations to identify small to large issues such as potholes, broken street lights, litter, water leaks, watering violations, broken sidewalks, defaced public property, and more.
The main call-to-action for the #GetEarthFixed campaign is to inspire individuals to openly discuss and identify issues of community improvement and maintenance, and unite them with their local city agencies. Cities from Plano, TX to the Village of Mahomet, IL to Fontana, CA, among 100 others, use the PublicStuff’s 311 technology to respond to and fix large and small issues reported by residents. “The PublicStuff platform is more than a tool for individuals to record and upload service requests to their local governments,” said Lily Liu, CEO and Co-founder of PublicStuff. “Our solution is a new approach to improving communication between city agencies and their constituents. Earth Day is a perfect way for us to demonstrate how everyday citizens can get active in their community and communicate the need for environmental sustainability.”
