It all started with a decision...
a decision to Leave It Better. I realized who was responsible for the decline of our natural and scenic areas. It was ME... It was US. We had forgotten that this land is our land; this land is our responsibility. As a result, many of our scenic areas have become coated with litter.
With the help of friends, I've set off to inspire others by attempting audacious clean-up efforts. In the last two years the Packing It Out crew has removed close to 2,000 pounds of trash from two of America's best known scenic trails, the Appalachian Trail and Pacific Crest Trail. Thousands have been inspired by our efforts and we don't plan to stop anytime soon. Our mission is continually evolving and we have a relentless passion to leave the people we meet and places we go BETTER.
