The Kick Off

After a month of preparation, spreading awareness across the globe, we managed to put together 344 trashpackers, in 43 countries, in ONE DAY!. They collected the amazing amount of 374 bin bags- good for 3054 kilo’s of trash!


I never thought I would be able to pick up a whole bag of rubbish, just around my own house.

What happened after that?

Since that first day, we are working very hard on our ultimate goal: collecting 100.000 bin bags in one year! The Trashpackers movement is raising awareness towards the plastic pollution problem. How many bin bags are left?
