Trek Against Trash

get more from BRO

It’s that time of the year, when ambitious hikers head to Georgia’s Springer Mountain to attempt thru-hikes of the entire Appalachian Trail. Georgians Jordan Price and Carlie Roberts headed out this past Saturday, but this pair decided to add a little meaning to their 2,175 miles.

Price and Roberts have dubbed their hike the “Trek Against Trash: The Hike to Keep America Beautiful.” On the way to Katahdin the couple plans to stop in towns near the trail to raise awareness for their cause by cleaning up litter, stenciling storm drains, and planting trees. The overall goal is to raise $150,000 for Keep America Beautiful, a national nonprofit organization that educates communities on how to reduce waste and environmental impact.
