WHY Trash 2 Treasure?

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.

Small acts, when multiplied by millions of people, can transform the world.
