Passionate travellers, environmentalists and aquaholics by nature from Czech Republic.
Check out this short documentary from our beginnings in Barcelona.
We are Míša and Jirka (or Michelle and George if you like) and we loooove travelling and everything that goes with it. Plus, we love nature and what bothers us a lot is the trash lying freely.
Although neither of us have never actually studied environmental issues, due to a series of life circumstances, from a chemist and an addictologist, we became passionate environmentalists picking up trash litterally everywhere we go. I mean it, we hardly leave home without gloves and at least a small bag for trash.
Although litter picking can be a frustrating activity, as no place stays clean forever and some only last a few minutes, we always try to maintain a positive spirit. We strive to project that positivity in our group clean-ups, talks and other educational activities we organise.
Since June 2020, when we went out to clean the beach for the first time after the lifting of the confinement, we have spent a lot of time and collected tens of thousands of pieces of rubbish, from your typical cigarette butts and plastic bottles to really strange finds like dentures or even urns with ashes.
Living in Barcelona made us fall in love with Spanish, which led us to Latin America, where our love only deepened. We fell in love with the generosity of the local people, their energetic culture and beautiful nature.
Our ultimate goal is to awaken a sense of community and togetherness in people. Whether we want to or not, we are all on the same boat. Whether we are from the Czech Republic, Uganda, India or Argentina, pollution does not respect country borders and each of us should play an active role in protecting our home, planet Earth. We simply do not have another planet like this one.
