Speakers


Jeff Kirschner

Founder and CEO, Litterati

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 movement that’s “crowdsource-cleaning” the planet one piece of litter at a time. Featured by National Geographic, Rolling Stone, and Time Magazine, Litterati is backed by the National Science Foundation, in partnership with the United Nations, and Jeff was named a resident at TED where he built Litterati into an "idea worth spreading."
