GUARDIANS OF THE EARTH

Čižmanova 6, 1211 Ljubljana, Slovenia 

WHAT WE EAT

We eat cookies while in Europe - and pancakes in the rest of the World. Keep them in dry place if possible.

DEAR FRIENDS, WARMLY WELCOME ON OUR SITE,
TO OUR INTERNATIONAL FAMILY ... TO TRASHBONDING ...
AMONG GUARDIANS OF THE EARTH ... GUARDIANS OF LIFE. 
WATER - AND CHILDREN - HAVE MEMORY
 
                                                            HOW WILL THEY REMEMBER US?
 
 TRASHBONDING
NO BIG WORDS - JUST ACTIONS
 
We are not waiting for Godot - for something to happen - we act! 

Without big philosophy, protecting nature promises, global warming threats, spreading fear or sailing around.

We are passionate about nature and dedicated to preserving it  by organising
International cleanup actions known as trashbonding.
 
While some protest - we hang on ropes in the mountains, canyons and caves and collect trash.
  
In our spare time, on our own expense, all over the globe, for 12 years in a row.
 
WE DARE BECAUSE WE CARE
How dare we? Well, we dare because we are ...
 
 GUARDIANS OF THE EARTH 

A global community of speleologists, outdoor enthusiasts and martial artists.

 

The ones who admire, love and respect nature ... 

 

the ones who take care of her, the ones who never give up ...

 

and the ones with a long-term plan ...the unstoppable Guardians.

 
 PROBLEM ... LONG-TERM PLAN ... SOLUTION

 

As explorers we recognised the source of pollution of waterways and oceans.

As inventors we came up with the idea of trashbonding. 

As scientists we made a long-term plan.

As outdoor enthusiasts we are organising international cleanup actions from Europe to China.

 

We have only one planet - and only one water.

Yet we are divided by borders, politics, language, wealth, religion ... and sadly but nevertheless - race.

 

In nature, all of these factors disappear. During our international cleaning actions, we once again come together as one race - the human race.

WHY INTERNATIONAL CLEANUP ACTIONS?

WE HAVE ONLY

ONE PLANET ...

... AND ONLY 

ONE WATER

A WATER THAT CONNECTS US ALL  

We deeply feel the spirit that connects all people around the world, the same that connects

humanity to nature. And we become one family - a family taking care of our Mother Earth.

The earth is not ours to save, but to respect, honour and preserve it.

 

WHY IS CAVING COMMUNITY

 

 

 

LEADING THE WAY?

 

Because we: 

can see in the dark ... like bats. And Batman.
already are an international family.
are modest. We sleep and eat in the mud.
share meals - and don't know egoism.
can carry stuff ... lots of stuff.
are explorers and scientists.
are positive, persistent and dedicated people.

AND WE ALWAYS WORK AS A TEAM

And last but not least - we are damn good organisers and simply the best bunch
of humans on the surface of planet Earth  - and the most "dirty ones underneath!"
 LEADERSHIP

Guardians of the Earth and trashbonding are led by speleoclubs Križna cave (Slovenia),

Plánivy (Czech Republic), Papp Ferenc (Hungary) and ZhongYuan Adventure Rescue team (China).

 SUPPORT

The cleanup actions of our caving community in China are recognised, encouraged and supported by:

Asian Union of Speleology, Cave Rescue China, Chinese Committee on Speleology, Chinese Geological Society

 

WHY OUTDOOR ENTHUSIASTS?

We love intact nature - and want to keep it that way!
As outdoor enthusiasts we are capable to clean hardly accessible areas -
mountains, caves, rivers, waterfalls, canyons and gorges.

AND WHY MARTIAL ARTISTS?

Because we never give up.
It's in our blood to carry on until we succeed.

We think of ourselves as nice and friendly humans ...

yet to defend what we love - nature and children - we are prepared to fight.

 

A kind warning: we have the lionesses - Women warriors - among our team:)

 

THE GUARDIANS OF LIFE

World history is full of examples where women were taking up arms to protect their loved ones.

They were representatives of the beautiful half of the human race who today are called "weaker sex". 

The Greeks called them Amazons. 

We call them - Women Warriors - The Guardians of Life.

FOR THOSE OF YOU

who survived the scrolling till here - and can still read - we prepared some nice texts.

They are worth checking.

THE ULTIMATE GOAL

 
The core of our organization rests on a strong belief that children and nature
are the very foundation of our existence in the future.
It is our job to activate all people around the world to take care of the environment!
