3,800 groups currently participating in the Texas Adopt-a-Highway program.
1 million volunteers participate every year nationwide.
00,000 miles of roadways cleaned nationwide every year is equal to 62.5 times the diameter of Earth.
90,000 programs worldwide. Other participating countries include: Canada, Mexico, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Great Britain, and Ireland.
In 2014, 11,000+ volunteers picked up 354,300 lbs. of litter and debris. That weighs the same as 35 elephants.
