IT'S TIME TO START MOVING FOR PLASTIC

There are already 500 times more plastic particles in our oceans than stars in the sky - around 51 trillion pieces.

But plastic is not only a problem for our oceans, you can find it in our food, bodies, water and even in the air we breathe.

Nevertheless, half of the global plastic was made in the 21st century, and our production is accelerating at exponential speed.

THIS IS THE TRAVELING TRASH TOUR

August 24th - October 20th, 2018 • France, Belgium, the Netherlands & Germany

A 1500km bike ride from Paris to Berlin

carrying along a giant flamingo made from plastic waste

and featuring events in 15 different cities

Going by bike, we can make the tour very sustainable and open for anyone to cycle along. With our plastic sculpture, we  bring awareness to the streets and tell the story of our journey to the world.

This trip is all about waste - or shall we say resources? We explore projects and companies of the circular economy, recycling and zero waste and spread those ideas that create a more positive future of plastics.

We might not have a band, but hell yes we're touring - with dozens of events along the way where you can learn, discuss, clean & create, connect and raise awareness with us.
And of course, you can follow online, too!

OUR ROUTE

WHY WE DO THIS

PUBLIC AWARENESS

We want to open eyes for the plastic paradox of our society: Over 40% of plastic is single-use, which means we are taking a non-renewable, fossil-based material made to last forever for use cases of a few minutes. Plastic never really degrades, and currently 91% of plastic isn't recycled.
There must be a better way to do this!

SOLUTIONS

We don't like complaining - we're here for the solutions! The TTT brings together all those movements, initiatives and companies that work on the transition to the circular economy and a world with less waste. We believe that solutions need to be heard, spread and boosted in their impact - because if we follow them, we can prevent the next wave of plastic pollution before it's too late.

ACTION

Everyone can do something about this! We show you how you can be part of the change: What is it that you can change in your personal life, in your company or organization in order to reduce waste and use plastic in a smarter way? Come on and get active by joining us with your ideas, know-how and creativity, helping us clean up your city and mobilizing people around plastic waste.
