Join the Mountain Days
Do you know that each year, over 150 tons of trash are thrown away on slopes in French ski resorts? To avoid that these summits looks like a waste pile, the French NGO Mountain Riders organises each year the Mountain Days: friendly clean-up days where you are more than welcome!
Mountain Days is an initiative of mountain clean up launched by the NGO Mountain Riders in 2001. The idea is very simple: recruiting a maximum number of volunteers to spend a good time and pick up the wastes piled up in the nature during winter.
In 2014, 110 clean-up events where organised. The aim for 2015 is to break the record and for that, they need you, your motivation and good mood! The coming events are listed on the Mountain Days map. If their is no event closed to you, you can organise your own or have a look on the Envirotrek of the “Respect the mountains” NGO.
Parallel to this clean-up action, Mountain Riders is actively engage to raise awareness about this problemc of pollution. Below is their latest video, that makes us thinking about protecting our mountains!
