I love running and playing outside. What I don’t love is the litter I see along the trails—gel tops, wrappers, miscellaneous paper and plastic, etc.
Litter isn’t only unattractive, it can be incredibly costly to clean up and is harmful to the environment and wildlife. Ever since my run on Mt. Hood Ski Bowl, I’m much more aware of trail trash and am determined to do something about it. I pick up and carry out what I find, but there’s many trails I have yet to explore, so I need your help.
This gallery showcases some of the trash I and others have found and packed out to bring awareness to our trashy trail problem. Our wilderness belongs to all of us; it’s up to us to keep it beautiful and viable—let’s Make a Pact, Pack it Out.
