Our friend Gil is an avid travel and adventure blogger and we’ve supported his recent ventures with our Hydration Packs & Sandals. For his latest project we didn’t send gear, but stepped out of the office and joined him on the beach.
Everyone is talking about plastic waste ruining the sea, wildlife and coastline – but too few of us actually get up and do something about it. Travel & adventure blogger Gil decided to change that with a simple challenge: He hikes along the beach, sharing his location with his followers, inviting anyone to join him picking up plastic bottles, cups, cutlery …
We immediately loved the initiative, and instead of supporting him with gear we got up from our desks this week and join him on the beach. It was quite an impressive experience, considering how much trash we managed to collect in just a few hours. And we’re encouraging everyone to do the same! To dedicate a day in the outdoors to collecting waste that mindless hikers, bikers, beachgoers just left to spoil the environment.
Please follow Gil’s lead, and make sure to share on Social Media to invite others to do the same! Also follow @whereisgil on Social Media to catch him on his next adventure. Kudos for getting out there and doing something!
