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!
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
