Meet Abby Taylor, an “off-the-couch pro.” On a whim, she joined the Packing It Out movement and has spent the summer cycling across the country cleaning up trash at scenic spots and trails along the way.
To date, she and her riding partner, Seth Orme, have cycled more than 3,000 miles and cleaned up 1,100+ pounds of litter.
Packing It Out is dedicated to cleaning America's trails. They've hiked the Appalachian Trail and Pacific Crest Trail, picking up thousands of pounds of trash along the way. In 2017, they embarked on a 5,000-mile bike trip with the plan to clean scenic areas and inspire others as they ride.
