IT’S EARTH DAY! JOIN US AT THE TRASH BASH TODAY!
Get ready to have fun and clean up our planet too!
We all share this insanely beautiful planet that provides us with endless adventure. LET’S GIVE BACK.
To inspire all of you to get outside + pick up trash [+ make it easy to dispose of appropriately], we have partnered with the Riveter and a group of amazing local initiatives to put on a MASSIVE CLEAN UP. Trails, rivers, roadsides… EVERYWHERE. Jump on an organized clean up, or do your own thing with friends + fam. Then head over to the Riveter to drop off your haul + celebrate!
RSVP on the event page if you plan to join us to clean up trash!
