Join the
World’s Biggest Butt Pick Up

[versão em português aqui]

 Earth Week / Earth Day is coming!
The ocean starts in our homes, in our streets, in our cities – with our acts!
It starts with a little act of picking a butt and ends up caring for the ocean, planet and climate.

Pick cigarette butts from 15th – 23rd of April EVERYWHERE IN PORTUGAL! Organise a group clean up in your area!

In 2021, we have collected 1.1 million cigarette butts together with 600 people and 70 NGOs in 2 months.
(Project “The Butt Hike” + Documentary Movie – details here)
Can we do this all in just 1 week? We believe yes!

– Just spread the message, invite and tag friends in @thetrashtraveler posts
Media Kit to Shareposters, invitation videos and communication guide here
– Initial Pick Up / Clean Up guidelines and info here!
– Send us an email to register your clean up or receive more infos:  (maybe we can connect you even with like minded people in your area!) 
Register here for the newsletter / ambassador program to help further Trash Traveler projects  
– Pick alone or with friends – we need only 2000 people to pick 500 butts – why not?!
Or better: Organise a biiiiig clean up with your local community: we (and you can also) invite everyone, incl. schools, municipalities, local parishes, universities, stores, restaurants, NGOs, Grandma’s, presidente Marcelo and general public to make it possible.
