The official launch of the Green Walkers program was at San Francisco's "Run Wild For A Child" run/walk. Online registrants were given an option to "Make a Pledge" to "Leave their surroundings cleaner than they found them." After making the pledge their name was entered into a drawing. 50 of the registrants received free "reachers" with which they could fulfill their pledge as they took their leisure walks by "bagging" litter found along the way.
“The inspiration for recruiting other walkers came to me when I made the “reacher” a regular part of my early morning and Saturday walks,” said W. Ron Sutton, Mr. Pedoemter. Mr. Pedometer was at the event with the walkers, demonstrating Green Walking which is “Leaving your surroundings cleaner than you found them.”
