ARE YOUR TRAILS HAUNTED????
We need your help to kick off the Halloween Trail Clean 2021!! We know some trail destinations are more haunted by single use pollution than others. Unfortunately, the scale of the task can be totally overwhelming for a small group or an individual with a black bag and half a day to do a trail clean. That’s why this year's Halloween Trail Clean Tour is going to be a little different to our usual DIO philosophy. We are looking to lend a hand and blitz seven of the most haunted trail destinations across the UK!
Are you feeling overwhelmed at your local spot? Is there somewhere that you travel to ride, run or roam that is just drowning in litter?
THE TRASHBUSTERS!! Yes, we’ll be hitting the road in the TRASHBUSTERS van between 22-31st October and visiting seven locations, bringing the full power of the Trash Free Trails crew to your local spot. The plan is to exorcise each location of spooky SUP in a single day blast, before we move on to the next location. We ain’t messing around either. This is more than your average trail clean. We will:
Rock up at your local spot with the TRASHBUSTERS van, 4x4 and ‘trash trailers’
Provide all the kit required to rid the trails of ghostly SUP and other nasties
Rally the Trash Free Trails community to come and lend a hand
Work with local press to publicise the event before and after
Work with the local council to arrange responsible recycling and disposal
Bring some special guest Red Bull, Trek and North Face athletes to roll up their sleeves (and show us some moves!)
Install a Trash Free Trails infographic sign, designed by the amazingly talented Beth Breeden @beeinthebig
Make a film documenting the whole week, to be shown at Kendal Mountain Festival in November.
Technology has moved on a little at the TRASHBUSTERS HQ, so rather than give us a call, we’d love for you to complete a super quick online form to nominate your trail. Be quick though!!
Entries are only open until Monday 27th of September.
WANT TO REGISTER YOUR OWN CLEAN??
Prefer to do your paranormal investigations solo? Live too far away from our tour locations? Or maybe your local trails just need a little bit of love from you and a few mates? No matter how much we would like to, we can never visit every single trail location and wild place in the UK. That’s why the TrashMob is so important and will always be the lifeblood of what we do.
We’d love you to join us virtually; so please do get involved. There’s guidance on how to organise a safe, effective and enjoyable trail clean in our DIO Toolkit and your local A-Team member is always on hand with advice and support if needed.
