Hike it out

The growing popularity of social media platforms such as Facebook and Instagram has infused a heightened sense of adventure and exploration, often for the gorgeous photo opportunities.  However, what the photos don’t often capture is the harmful effect of rubbish and human impact on our natural habitats.

Lets reset the standards of what we do with litter.  YOUR actions when finding rubbish will directly impact the next persons experience.  You could also be saving an animals life, protecting our environment and contributing to the item being recycled properly.

Hike it Out is an environmental awareness campaign aimed specifically at building a hiking culture that holds everyone responsible for their own rubbish, and any they find along the way; it’s that simple.  Live by this, encourage your friends to travel and explore with a Hike it Out mentality and suddenly our world will start to look a little cleaner.  The environment is our responsibility, and so is our rubbish.  Together we WILL make a difference.


Vision and Mission

Our vision is to influence all people outdoors to be responsible for their rubbish, leaving all natural sights litter free.

Our mission is to be adventure inspiring and environmentally focused targeting waste and pollution.  The project must make a difference and benefit the community.
