Join our hike of trash awareness with fun and positivity!

REFUSE single-use plastics, REDUCE packaging as much as possible, RETHINK fish consumption and REUSE every item you own until it reaches the end of life – only then, recycle it.

In 2020, The Trash Traveler hiked along the entire 832 km long coast of Portugal in 58 days to raise awareness about plastic pollution together with more than 100 NGOs. 1,6 tons of plastic were collected but the coast is not clean at all… 8 million tons of plastic enter the ocean yearly. We have to stop its source.

Plastic pollution starts with it’s production, using fossil fuels. The ocean starts with our actions, in our homes. Join our journey to take care of our planet, to act responsibly and demand companies to take on responsibility for what they produce. If everyone tries to make an impact, we can achieve change together. Check out the “The Plastic Hike” exhibition, documentary screenings and workshops.
