Be A Traveler and a Trash Hero

The ocean is filled with garbage created and displaced by humans. In fact, there is a garbage patch floating around the Pacific Ocean that is TWICE the size of Texas! This garbage comes from land and ends up re-depositing on beaches and waterfronts all over the world.

It’s hard to enjoy a beautiful beach when it is littered with garbage. So Free & Easy decided to do something about it! We work with Trash Hero to spend a day on each of our trips completely cleaning a beach! This day ends up being one of the best days. Picking up litter can be a hell of a good time when you’re with a crew of like-minded travelers and locals working toward a common goal!
