Move Copenhagen joined in the #trashbagchallenge during a retreat in Zanzibar, taking the challenge to a whole new continent. Bradley Duling and Move Copenhagen shared this post in February.

Move Copenhagen is continually inspired by the great actions of our friends from all around the world. This year, the guests at the Move Copenhagen Winter Retreat at Zanzibar took action to participate in a movement that will benefit more than themselves. In just one hour, our small group collected 350 kg of trash from the beaches and areas that we’ve been using.
We got some strange looks from the locals at first, but they joined in when they saw our determination to make their land more enjoyable. Once finished, the locals from Zanzibar, as well as Masai hunters from mainland Tanzania, joined us in our slackline, acroyoga, parkour, and natural movement jam. Our many cultures mixed together during this jam and the beach bonfire afterwards, where we introduced our movement styles, and we learned jump dancing and throat acoustics from the Masai.We owe a big thanks to Andy Lewis and the #trashbagchallenge that inspired us. We now want to pay it forward and challenge everyone else who is out enjoying the great places our planet has to offer. If you’re at your home town, if you’re vacationing at a yoga retreat, if you’re trekking through the forest, or just relaxing on a beach, pick up the trash around you and inspire others to do the same.Know someone who organizes or is attending a retreat? Tell them about the #trashbagchallenge and get them to post the results. Let’s keep this movement going!—With global love from Move CopenhagenMany thanks to the Movers who participated!
