WHY CHINA?  
 ONE AND ONLY           FIRST ACTIONS               WONDER              CN MEDIA 
 
THE ONLY ONE

TRASHBONDING IN CHINA

 

Guardians of the Earth and our friends in China are organising - yet the fourth -

international cleanup action at the sacred Songshan UNESCO Global Geopark in October 2020.

 

The biggest and the only one of its kind in the world.

Not because China would be so polluted - in many ways it will soon lead the way

in preserving nature -  but because it was the first country to understand our idea

and to welcome the ‘Gathering of nations’.

What better place to organise it than at the “Centre of Heaven and Earth”.

 

BECOME PART OF A GREAT STORY

It is our goal to show that water connects us all -

and that working together is the only chance to preserve this wonderful treasure.

 

We are setting up a model of international cooperation as the basis

for future similar actions across the globe and are determined to organise 

trashbonding cleanup actions twice per year. Your country can be next. 

 

Yet to organise the best event ever, we need your help.

Please check our sponsor plan, support us, join us.

OUR FIRST THREE ACTIONS

Our cleanup actions are carefully planned and have already been tested three times in 2018 and 2019

- to check our efficiency, necessary equipment, dangers, difficulties and international cooperation.

Although we didn't understand each other a bit, we did a great job, became good friends - and had great fun.

IMPRESSIONS FROM CO-ORGANISERS

Mr. Bogdan of Slovenia and his colleagues

came to China this time, to our Songshan Shaolin Scenic Area to do the International Cleaning Action. 

This Action is very meaningful, very good. It has taken the lead in demonstrating to all explorers and tourists that when in the mountains, they shouldn’t litter. We should work together to protect our planet and to improve our living environment. This kind of action is very, very good. We also strongly welcome this kind of

activities to be conducted in all scenic areas,

in the more polluted areas in China as well,

to guide all tourists to improve their behaviours, to protect our planet, water,

also to protect our environment.

Thank you.

Mr. Li Yongjun, CTS (Dengfeng) Songshan Shaolin Cultural Tourism Co.

 

We share the same Heavens

We share the same Earth

All living beings

Need to be cared for

We breathe the same breath

Our fates are intertwined

Guard the blue skies

Protect the Earth

The clear rivers and lush mountains

Are our mountains of gold and silver

The air quality in China has been very poor in

recent years. I had to breathe the thick smog

in the winters. Although the government has

been striving to rectify the situation, as a citizen, 

I think I have to do something as well.

It is our duty to help the government to solve this problem, even though our capacity may be limited. Also, China’s economy is better than what it was in the past, and the surge in happiness index for the Chinese is largely due to the increasing spending on touristic activities. However, we can see large amount of tourist waste accumulated in the scenic area, and in the mountains and rivers in China, which is in sharp contrast with its natural landscape. It has made the nature no longer beautiful, and left us with only complaints about the environment. Therefore, there should be more people going out to pick up the trash in the mountains. The awareness of protecting the environment and maintaining sustainable development should be spread out.

Mr. Wang Xiguo, Cave Rescue China

 
IF YOU WONDER
WHY INTERNATIONAL?
 

Water connects all of us in the world. It is the driving force of life and it doesn't know borders. It is our job to activate all people around the world to care of this wonderful treasure - and working together is the only way.

WHY SLOVENIA & CHINA?
 

The idea of outdoor sportsmen and martial artists preserving nature, involving youth and the International cleanup action is an eight year old idea & goal of two friends:

Bogdan Kladnik from Slovenia and Shi Yanzi from China. 

WHY CHINA?
 

It is the decision of president Xi Jinping and the Chinese government to make China green again. They have the necessary resources, manpower, knowledge and will. If anyone can do it, the Chinese people can - and they will set up an example for the whole world.

WHY SONGSHAN MOUNTAINS?
 

Mount Song is one of the most sacred mountains in China. As one of the cradles of Chinese civilization, it became a crucial center of politics, economy and culture, as well as the sacred land where Taoism, Buddhism and Confucianism have assembled since the ancient time.

WHY SHAOLIN TEMPLE?
 

Songshan Shaolin Temple is the cradle of Chan Buddhism and Chinese martial arts.

It is located under the foot of Wuru Peak of Songshan mountains near Dengfeng city,

Henan province - and is of great importance to all martial artists.

WHY DENGFENG?
 

Dengfeng is considered to be the center of terrestrial powers and the only point from which astronomical observations are considered to be accurate. Most historians attribute the mysterious power to its location at the foot of Mount Song.

The friendly cooperation between small EU countries like Slovenia, Czech Republic, Hungary and China,

one of the biggest - between countries that are 8,000 km apart - has a great symbolic meaning.

It will show to the world that we all have to unite to preserve our Earth.
