San Diego War Against Litter CommitteeFounded as the San Diego War Against Litter Committee in 1954, I Love A Clean San Diego celebrates six decades of promoting environmental education and awareness in San Diego County. In the 1970s "I Love A Clean San Diego" was the slogan for the organization's anti-litter campaign and in 1980 it became the organization's name. In 1989, ILACSD merged with the San Diego Ecology Center, joining two leading environmental organizations together to better serve the community, under one name. Thanks to the continued support of our volunteers and generous donors, we celebrated our 60th year in 2014!
