A global community of trashbonders since 2007. We dare because we care.
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.
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.
