Starboard partly runs the Bangkok chapter of Trash Hero, leading waterway cleanups on SUPs and around Bangkok. We wanted to encourage and inspire more our global SUP community to join us in paddling and picking.
2017’s World Clean-up social media campaign mobilized paddlers around the world to stand up for their environment. From Taiwan to the Thames, watersport enthusiasts joined a think global, act local movement by picking up their local waterways and posting the photos to social media with the hashtag #StarboardWorldCleanup to encourage others to do the same.
Two months and hundreds of cleanups later, 10 participants were randomly chosen to receive Starboard prize packs with tools to host their own SUP pickups and one lucky winner received a SUP and paddle to enjoy our big blue playground.
