Step, Collect, Connect!
We help organize plalking events to remove plastic and other waste from our Winnipeg ecosystems. Plalking, a combination of walking and picking up litter, offers a low barrier to entry for everyone to care for their environment and develop a deeper connection with it.

Clean the Environment
Promote Physical Well-Being
These cleanup activities provide the opportunity for physical exercise, such as walking, squatting, stretching and bending, which promotes overall well-being.
Foster Human Connections
By encouraging Winnipeg community members to participate in real-life interactions via cleanup sessions, the hope is to reduce isolation, improve mental health, and enhance the overall quality of life.
Through these cleanup initiatives, you see first-hand the problem of plastic pollution and learn about environmental sustainability. Our goal is to inspire others to adopt eco-friendly habits which can create a ripple effect of positive change towards a cleaner planet.
Waste Cleanup as a Catalyst
We envision a world where waste cleanup efforts lead to a broader understanding of environmental challenges and their interconnectedness. Individuals involved in cleanup activities gain firsthand experience of the detrimental effects of waste on ecosystems and recognize the need for sustainable practices. This heightened consciousness drives behavior change, inspiring individuals to adopt eco-friendly habits and actively seek solutions to environmental problems.
