Give something back-packing

Our mission

Our mission is to create a movement of backpackers to pick up trash during their journey (or at home) and reduce the usage of single-use plastic. We’re about to start a challenge to collect 100.000 bags of trash in 1 year with everybody who wants to join the community. If you want to join us: sign yourself up!

Want to help?

We’re currently overwhelmed with positive messages and people that are willing to help. We’re working on a new website to grow our community. Want to know what you can do to help or donate? Sign up for our newsletter or follow us on facebook and we’ll let you know soon!

Our Story

It started in Thailand and Laos when I traveled for the first time. I got confronted with several extreme polluted places and was shocked to see that apparently nobody cares about it. When I went back to Asia in 2017, I saw the same thing in other countries. Many backpackers that I met along the way shared the same concerns and I appreciated the conversations, but at the same time I thought “We are talking about this, but what are we going to do to solve the problem?”. – Tijmen Sissing
