Cache In Trash Out® (CITO) is an environmental initiative supported by the geocaching community. Since 2002, CITO has enabled geocachers to beautify and restore natural and urban spaces. In that time, there have been more than 536,000 logged attendances at nearly 29,000 events where geocachers helped improve the outdoors.
As seasoned geocachers know, taking care of the outdoor spaces where we geocache is an important part of the game we love so much. Geocachers are lucky enough to have a whole planet as their game board and they take their responsibility for maintaining and improving that game board seriously. Many cachers give back to the environment by practicing CITO habits and are enjoying an additional chance to improve the environment this year with the Locationless Cache, GC8NEAT. We at HQ had a feeling that geocachers would be excited about the GC8NEAT Locationless Cache, but we’ve been blown away by how many have taken part and how creative they have been with improving their environment. As of right now, over 23,000 cachers have logged GC8NEAT and geocachers around the world have hosted more than 1,400 CITO Events.
