The Trash2Treasure event has 3 key aims for the local community:
- raise awareness of trash
- demonstrating the many different ways in which trash can be re-used or recycled
- offer alternatives trash management that can become a daily activity for locals
The T2T event aims to address many environmental issues.
Two of the most significant environmental problems include:
- trash amassing in river beds and oceans
- the burning of plastic as a means of dealing with waste
We feel that this event will fill a ‘gap’ and boost the cooperation of locals who are inactive and reluctant to participate in the weekly Trash Hero’s beach clean-ups.
