The Trash Traveler found an old bicycle and brings it back to life to cycle 3000 km around Portugal. We have to give trash value, if we want to prevent the yearly 8 million tons of plastic to enter the ocean worldwide… Join The Trash Cycle and help spreading awareness!

1. Check the map below, click on a location, and see what day we clean and raise awareness in your area.

2. All infos will be specified in the map but Instagram / Facebook will give you daily updates of the tour.

3. Bring reusable gloves and bags to the clean ups! We have to refuse single use as much as possible! (No registration needed – just join!)

4. Do you know groups or friends who would like to join? Everyone is welcome!

5. Do you know any cicular, environmental, trash project that would be nice to check out? Send us an email! (

6. Do you know any company, journalist or even Presidente Marcelo who could help raising awareness? Then send them this website link.

7. We will create another documentary to raise awareness. Do you know a photographer or filmmaker who has fun joining as part of the tour? Or even yourself – upload pictures and videos you take during our clean ups. A documentary from the community for the community. Ask for the link at the clean up!

8. If you like the project and feel you want to support more, you can donate to our cause and cover some of our costs. We have some sponsors, however, it does not cover all costs. As a thank you, you will be placed in the credits of the documentary movie! 🙂
