Cache In Trash Out – Geocaching.com’s Lost & Found Video

Thousands of geocachers walk into parks, onto trails and off the beaten path to cleanup the environment each year.  The environmental movement is called Cache In Trash Out (CITO).  This past April 24th and 25th were no different.  But CITO doesn’t just take place on one weekend around Earth Day each year.  Geocachers often seek a cache and clear out trash on each trip.

Here’s a video tribute to the volunteer spirit of geocachers who play a part in CITO, each year and each geocache.  It’s an easy role to play in the ongoing environmental initiative, just find a CITO near you.

Geocachers Deep Clean Mother Nature

So, your TV stops working. Just stops. What do you do? You take the 42″ TV to your pristine local park. You quickly swivel your head around. There’s no one there. Then you clumsily dump the TV in the deep brush. Done. Maybe it’s biodegradable?!?!

Wait. Wait. Wait. That’s not YOU. You’re the person who’s waist deep in thorny brush pulling out the battered (and NOT biodegradable) TV. And there’s also a lawnmower and another TV and even more trash. Whew.

Carnation, WA USA – COWWS CITO Event

You’re not alone. Thousands of Geocachers around the world took the weekend of the April 24 th and 25th to clean their local parks and trails. It’s called Cache In Trash Out (CITO). It’s a little payback for what has been a couple pretty rough centuries for ol’ Mother Nature. And we’ve seen what happens when Mother Nature doesn’t get the respect she deserves – cue the volcano.

Good choice in helping cleanup the place. If you didn’t help yet, don’t fear the volcano. CITO events happen throughout the year. Find your opportunity here. If you did a CITO let’s see some of your pictures and video on Facebook. And Thank YOU!
