The Trash Hero mission is to create sustainable, community-based projects that remove existing waste, and reduce future waste by inspiring long-term behavioral change. They do this through:
Action and Awareness. They pick up trash. Whether a cigarette butt on the road, or 20,000 kilos from island beaches – if they see it, they clean it!
Education. They back up hands-on experience with educational information about the impact that trash has on the global environment.
Sustainable Projects. They create long-term projects that bring communities together to remove and better manage their waste, and strategies that reduce the amount of waste being produced in the future.
Inspiration. They motivate people to become Trash Heroes in their everyday lives.
Starboard partly runs the Bangkok chapter of Trash Hero, leading waterway cleanups on SUPs around Bangkok and educating local students about how to care for the environment.
