#packitout

Have you heard of the friends who are walking famous hiking trails and picking up rubbish as they go? The project called #packitout has grown and grown, with new trails and hikes planned for 2017. You can follow their 2016 Pacific Crest Trail and read about how their love of the outdoors lead them to clean up other people’s mess as they walked along. You can watch a short video of Seth and Paul’s adventures.

Seth said “If you go to someone’s home and it’s really clean, you’re like, ‘I’m not going to throw trash on their floor.’ I hope people will start seeing the outdoors as less of a commodity and more of a community that we respect and value.”
