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?
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.
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 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
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?
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!"
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).
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
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:)
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!
