By Janelle From September 15 through September 23, over ten thousand geocachers participated in 2018’s worldwide Cache In Trash Out® Events.
Let’s take a moment to do just a tiny bit of eco-math, shall we? If everyone picked up just one bag of garbage, each weighing 20 pounds (9 kilograms), that means a whopping 200,000 pounds (91,000 kilograms) of rubbish were gathered from Mother Earth. Nice work, geocachers!
Take a look at ten wonderful Cache In Trash Out® 2018 moments from around the world.
