Cleanups Along The Way

USA Trash Picked up: 293lbs

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.
