About Julia Santucci:
Always an East Coaster at heart while loving life on the west coast. I started in New Jersey and I remember being a small girl who would notice trash outside as I was playing. Luckily is wasn't that bad at all but one day I decided to throw on the roller blades at age 13, grab a trash bag and pick it all up (or as much as my little frame could carry, remember I'm from NJ so stronger than I looked even then haha). Years later while living in NYC and as a runner, I would again notice trash all over and wanted to do something about it. I spoke with friends about creating a 'clean streets and stylish eats' movement. I was shocked to hear everyone was into it! Push to last year when I was looking for volunteer ideas and I met the creator of The Clean Mission. Jeff Winkle had the street clean up system set, so I joined him to add the sponsors and partnerships factor. Today, along with TCM, I also work on partnerships on my own connecting brands who can help each other while always sharing tips of the day with friends on recycling.
About The Clean Mission:
They are simply a group of volunteers who gather on the weekend for a few hours to clean up our city streets! They have been lucky to partner with amazing brands such as LUSH and PathWater for appreciation gifts and also with local venues who sponsor them with bites and drinks after. They supply the tools, just bring yourself!
