Peleton Against Plastic

Wednesday, 11 September 2019 - 6:30pm
All over Australia and the world
New South Wales, Northern Territory, Western Australia, Queensland, South Australia, Tasmania, Victoria and International

The Peloton Against Plastic is a bicycle ride from Hanoi to Bangkok that started on 16 June 2018, designed to generate conversation about prevention of plastic pollution.

While SE Asian countries get a bit of a bad ‘wrap’ when it comes to plastic. Our aim is to listen to locals, hear their ideas, their solutions and riff about the future of the plastic menace. Raise awareness of what is and can be achieved and maybe raise a little a money for their cause.

From the moment we jump on our bicycles we will be passing through beautiful scenery, talking to wonderful locals and eating fantastic food. So, naturally we are going to be having a good time.

No one is perfect, but we will also be doing our best to avoid the stuff and seeing how easy or difficult responsible ‘less plastic’ travel is in this part of the world. Join us and share ideas, we’re all in this together.

The journey
As we make our way through Vietnam, we’ll meet with key plastic reduction and environmental groups from Hanoi to HoiAn to Ho Chi Minh City. Talking to Clean and Green Vietnam, Live and Learn Vietnam and all of their friends. Participating in cleanups, seeing programs in action, what works and what doesn’t.

Through the Mekong and into Cambodia’s Phenom Penh, Siem Reap and Angkor Wat we will talk with Plastic Free Cambodia and Rehash Trash. Then onto Thailand, finishing up in Bangkok.

Cleanups, education, business solutions, and anything else they want to show us. An amazing opportunity to learn from others and hear what works or what could work if they had the funding. The solutions to reducing single use plastic are many and varied, top up and bottom down. So saddle up and come for a ride.
