The Cupertino Earth Week Clean Up, commonly known as the Cupertino Clean Up, was an event intended to happen between 19 and 25 April 2020 for the purpose of cleaning up in micronational territory belonging to member states of the Cupertino Alliance, to coincide with Earth Day. Due to the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the event was postponed indefinitely.


Garbage on Highland Creek

On 27 March 2020, Jayden Lycon took a walk on the Highland Creek to take shots of the river as well as SV Niantic for a featured picture attempt. He had only walked 100 meters, collecting garbage, when he had filled up his bag. He later sorted it out and recycled/threw it into the garbage.[1]

A concerned Lycon decided to raise the issue to the Cupertino Alliance. With the experiences from the 69 Hour Session, the Cupertino Alliance decided to host an organizational-wide clean up on 22 April 2020, which was Earth Day, as well as starting up a division for environmental and geographical data collection. The Cupertino Alliance decided to send the invitation to this event to the Grand Unified Micronational [2] but later rejected by the GUM.[3] During this time, the event was extended to a week to account for any possible time zone and weather variables.

Members like Zabëlle Skye, William Efton and more are planned to participate in this event.

On 16 April 2020, on the advice from Toronto Public Health and Public Health England, the event was postponed indefinitely due to COVID-19.[4][5]
