Kickin' plASStic in Panama

Remember Tim Harvey, our favorite ecoventurous Canadian "zero emissions traveler", who crossed oceans and continents sans petroleum - riding, walking, sailing, and charming his way around the world to raise awareness about climate change?

He's now finishing up his manifesto in Panama, and tackling trash - for kicks - in his spare time.

Tim's friend Harreson, sick of seeing garbage strewn about, took matters into his own hands. He gathered a local crew, a willing Canadian with a truck, and began carting loads of crap from the beautiful countryside.

This awesome little photo montage tells the story. and makes garbage removal look way more appealing than in Los Angeles.....
