The Trash Hero mission is to bring communities together to clean and reduce waste. We do this through:
- Action and Awareness. Our volunteers pick up trash and motivate others to do the same. By spending a few hours together cleaning up, people gain a profound understanding of the need to reduce and better manage waste.
- Education. We engage children through our multilingual kids’ programme, connecting environmental values with hands-on experience of the impact that plastic trash has on the ocean. Adults learn through doing, with actvities and workshops provided by our volunteers.
- Sustainable Projects. We create long-term programmes that help communities to reduce and better manage existing waste, and strategies that will prevent future waste.
- Inspiration. We motivate people to break free from plastic and become Trash Heroes in their everyday lives. With consistently positive messaging, and a philosophy of “small steps”, we remove the barriers to change and normalise a vision of a zero-waste world.
There are Trash Hero chapters located all over the world. We’ve plotted the main chapters on our map, but there are many, many more. Please do visit their website to see the full list.
