5 STAGES TO TRASH FREE TRAILS

 

Sadly the problem of single use plastic trashing our trails and cluttering up our daily lives isn't going away any time soon. So, whilst it's vital that we all take action it's just as important to take things one step at a time, to take care of ourselves and remember to HAVE FUN! 

We believe that trust is the single most important ingredient in building strong and empowered communities is trust and the only things that build trust are time and shared toil. 

So, if it's ok with you guys, let's start at the start and see where we get to? If the answer's "YES!" then have a go at the steps (or STAGES!) below and let us know how it works out.
