OUTDOORTREE wants to thank "Extreme Terrain for the Clean Trail Grant" of $250. OUTDOORTREE was founded based on the idea everyone can make a difference. It is difficult to organize large Jeep events due to schedules and work. Usually a small percentage of a group can make it or if a lot can go the events are very infrequent. We wanted to develop a system that encouraged individual Jeepers and adventures to do service even if just on there Sunday morning trail ride.
Thus, the 10 piece challenge was adopted as out moto. The challenge to you is - every adventure simply take out 10 pieces of litter. All you need is a garbage bag and maybe some gloves. Everyone can take out 10 pieces of litter each ride. The compounding impact of everyone simply taking out 10 pieces of litter is enormous. OUTDOORTREE decided to use the grant money to do several small service projects to set an example that every Jeeper out there can do there part, whether they are part of a Jeep club, ride solo, or with their dog. Here are some photos of these 10 Piece Challenge service projects.
NEWS: OUTDOORTREE Expanding to work with the Overland Community on the #10piecechallenge
OUTDOORTREE is working with Warn, Gobi Racks, and Kokopelli to get the Jeep ready to expand the #10piece challenge. While OUTDOORTREE is a motorcycle group at heart we want to work with and get as many adventurers involved as possible and that is why we are expanding. The motorcycle side of OUTDOORTREE is not going anywhere just growing the family. We are excited to work with the Overland Four Wheel community and have already found that community welcoming with open arms to our 10 piece challenge. Follow are daily adventures on instagram @outdoortree.
2018 focus is about water. We drink it. We bathe in it. We play in it. We eat its hosts. How can we help to preserve it? Throughout our travels we at OUTDOORTREE have found the most litter on/in the water. Beautiful water attracts people which unfortunately attracts garbage. A very high percentage of the litter is fishing garbage. There should be zero tolerance for this, especially in the outdoors community of fisherman, campers and motorcycles. Lets work together this year to first not litter and second to help clean up the litter we find. (Tip: Tenkara Mini Saw Tooth by Tenkara Rod CO fits perfect in the Mosko Moto Bags)
10 pIECE cHALLENGE
I know you ride, but do you subscribe to the philosophy: Leave No Trace? Hopefully you answered yes to that question! Sadly, there are a lot of riders out there that don’t.
OUTDOORTREE, founded in 2016, has a mission save the outdoors one ride at a time.
How can motorcyclist save the outdoors you ask? One of the easiest and most effective ways is to be a part of the 10 piece challenge.
You can participate by simply picking up ten pieces of litter each ride. Just place an empty garbage bag or dry bag in your motorcycle storage and take off.
While '10' may sound like a nominal number, it multiplies immensely through the collective power of a group of riders. In a single day, twelve riders can remove 120 pieces of litter. If a second group passes through the same area the following day, this quickly grows to 240 pieces and beyond. We all know of these areas in our regions that people dump trash or destroy a campsite.
By collecting litter, riders lead through example and educate our communities of the negative consequences of litter for the woodlands and the health of their animals and people. This is intended to foster a pride in their environment that only has positive outcomes for the riding community and visitors alike.
Join OUTDOORTREE and commit to being a part of the 10 piece challenge.
