Basque Country-based Orbea are the latest bike brand to join Trash Free Trails’ partnership roster to help get our wild spaces cleaned up.
Trash Free Trails have welcomed Orbea into the fold in their quest to clean our wild spaces of single-use pollution and reengage people with the outdoors.
This isn’t just one clean-up day, rather a global and environmental movement we plan to support for years to come. As a company who relies heavily on trails and the great outdoors, we are honored to work with such a passionate organization and excited to act as a gateway to increase environmental awareness.
We want our users to understand that cycling is part of something bigger – we do things the right way – without compromise and believe those who understand the causes and impacts of single-use pollution (AKA litter) can be a catalyst for a fairer, more sustainable society for future generations to come.
“Nature is where we escape everyday life, explore unseen beauty, and of course, recreate. We believe that nature should be preserved for generations to come. We want to be part of the solution, so we can share the same amazing experiences we had in nature with the next generation. We are beyond excited to partner with Trash Free Trails, a group that is passionate about keeping trails open and nature beautiful.”Parker DeGray Orbea UK, CA, USA Marketing Manager
“Right from the beginning of Trash Free Trails, we knew that if we were to get anywhere close to achieving our mission, the support of influential brands in the sector would be vital. Welcoming Orbea into our Partnership Ecosystem at a strategic level is a huge step for that mission. Far from the one day clean up, flash in the pan style partnership this world sees all too often, supporting all of our work across the board on a multi-year basis means we’ll be able to leave even more positive traces on the people and places we pass through – contributing to better, more sustainable trails, and the wild places they take us to.”Richard Breeden, Trash Free Trails Programmes Manager
Last year alone, Trash Free Trails removed over 7,000kg of single-use pollution (aka litter).
