Follow Abby & Seth as they cycle across the U.S., packing out trash from iconic landscapes at local events.
In 2015, three young thru-hikers created the 'Packing It Out' project along the Appalachian Trail, where they journeyed 2,189 miles and packed out more than 1,000 pounds of trash.
Last year, the team trekked the Pacific Crest Trail. For 2017, in partnership with REI, they are bike-touring 5,000 miles across the U.S. to meet with local cleanup crews and spread their message. Follow Seth & Abby from April - September as they pedal from Georgia to the Pacific Ocean in Washington state.
Despite media coverage that has America divided and at each other's throats, in 3,000 miles of cycling across mostly rural areas, we've found that most people are delightful to talk to and itching to help. Read More
Seth Orme and Abby Taylor have pedaled 2/3 of the way across the U.S. in search of trash this year. With the miles rolling by and the trash piling up, they stopped to share a few things they've learned along the way. Read More
I spy a Cap hiding in the lush greenery of the North Carolina roadside. What's he doing? Filling our bottles with cold, mountain spring water....Ol @c.r.a.b.b.y somehow heard this stream bubbling down out of the hillside and stopped the 38 mph downhill bomb to check it out....Sometimes you've just gotta pull over and see what mother nature is offering you.
