Cleanup The Greenway! says
Do you use the Greenway to bike commute? Walk your dog? Running? Help us keep it green and join us on June 30th for a clean-up of the Greenway Bike Highway in Minneapolis!

We will meet at GJ Headquarters at 6:00pm and head out from there. The plan is to enjoy some snacks and beverages before hitting the Greenway in groups of 2-4 until 8:00pm. PLUS, there will be REI gift cards for the top 5 trash collectors (measured by weight)! Bonfire at GJ HQ to follow if weather permits.

A little background for you:

GearJunkie contributors, Seth and Abby, are on a 5,025-mile bike ride across America to to meet with local cleanup crews to 'Pack It Out' from scenic trails. They are stopping in Minneapolis on June 29th and they need our help!

On June 29th, join us for a FREE event at the Bloomington REI.
Register for the in-store event here: https://www.rei.com/events/packing-it-out-2017-tour-at-rei-bloomington/bloomington/175135

Hear firsthand how the duo are partnering with communities from coast to coast to clean up America's scenic spaces on their cross-country cycling journey.

In addition to the presentation, Seth and Abby will show a short film about Packing It Out in 2016, selected for the Banff Film Festival World Tour. The film details the Packing it Out crew's 2,650 mile hike along the PCT, packing out more than 720 pounds of trash along the way, which served as inspiration for their trash collecting, bike packing trip this year. Q&A to follow the film.
