Join our awareness journey with creativity and positivity!
Since 2019, The Trash Traveler is raising awareness about plastic pollution with extraordinary approaches, fun and creativity.
1. “The Travel Trash Project”: 1 ton of plastic got collected along the coast of Portugal and 160 awareness videos and Ukulele songs were created.
2. “The Plastic Hike“: In 2020, The Trash Traveler hiked every single meter of the entire 832 km long coast of Portugal in 58 days to collect 1,6 tons of plastic with more than 100 NGOs and 560 people. All trash was transformed into awareness art!
3. “The Butt Hike“: In 2021, 1,1 million cigarette butts were collected in 38 cities and beach areas along the coast of Portugal together with more than 600 people and 70 NGOs. All butts are further raising awareness as art pieces along the coast!
4. “The Trash Cycle“: Just Finished: 2370 km around Portugal with a bicycle called Rosa, that got created out of 14 different second hand bike parts. Without a break day, The Trash Traveler, cycled and collected 4599 bottles and cans to collect signatures for the implementation of a deposit system in Portugal. Art will be created out of the bottles and cans to further raise awareness!
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.
Join our journey to take care of our planet, to act responsibly and demand companies and governments to take on responsibility for what they produce and do. If everyone tries to make an impact, we can achieve change together.
