Marisa said, "We Clean Trails is a grassroots community cleanup effort that strives to reduce the amount of litter and debris in our environment through cleanup events and leave no trace education. We Clean Trails is excited to partner with Beauties for a Cause due to their commitment to supporting environmental projects and female activists."
