Waste-Free Wall clean up hike

Waste-Free Wall clean up hike with Gung Ho and Patagonia, 2018/06/03

We’ve been doing clean up hikes since 2009 – sometimes at the Great Wall, sometimes at other places.

For this clean up, Gung Ho! Pizza asked us to get involved, as they’re planning a program of regular clean up hikes near their base at the Jiankou Great Wall.

So it was sort of like a test run for a program of more regular clean up hikes.

The test run went pretty good! Click through to read more about it, and to see all the photos!
