Join our awareness journey with fun and positivity!
Since 2019, The Trash Traveler is raising awareness about plastic pollution with extraordinary approaches, fun and positivity. It started with “The Travel Trash Project” in which 1 ton of plastic got collected along the coast of Portugal and 160 awareness videos and Ukulele songs resulted for SocialMedia. In the following year, in 2020, The Trash Traveler developed into a community project as awareness is better created together. The Trash Traveler hiked every single meter of the entire 832 km long coast of Portugal in 58 days to meet and collect 1,6 tons of plastic with more than 100 NGOs and 560 people. However, it was never about cleaning, only about showing the state of plastic pollution and creating a network. In 2021, the community project went into the second edition to show where the ocean starts: Far away from the beach, in our cities and in us. Therefore, 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.
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 to take on responsibility for what they produce. If everyone tries to make an impact, we can achieve change together.
