Maintaining public trails is the responsibility of everyone who uses them, whether on foot, by bike or by vehicle. To raise awareness of trail upkeep, Dometic, the mobile refrigerator/freezer company, has partnered with the non-profit land-use organization Tread Lightly! with the goal of enlisting volunteers to help clean 25,000 miles worth of trails this month.
Full details are in the press release below, but here’s the short version: Submit proof of your club or group cleaning up a section of trail and you could win a Dometic CFX40W electric cooler. It’s the perfect excuse to go out on the trails and make a difference. The contest runs through August 30, 2018.
Full Press Release:
ELKHART, Ind. – August 8, 2018
Dometic and Tread Lightly™ are teaming up to clean up trails, parks and other beautiful spots across the country! The goal is to collectively clean up 25,000 miles over the month of August to commemorate the official partnership between TreadLightly! and Dometic.
During the month of August, Dometic and Tread Lightly! challenge the outdoor and off-road community to actively clean the trails they explore and the campsites they enjoy. Keep an eye on the sides of the trail, around obstacles and near campsites for any trash that needs to be picked up. Together, if we all take a few moments to pick up trash, we can make a massive difference in the condition of our favorite areas.
To kick off this effort, Dometic and Tread Lightly! recently teamed up for a 4×4 trail stewardship effort at the yearly All-4-Fun Mile Hi Jeep Club gathering in the Empire, CO. This trail day brought together Dometic and Tread Lightly! employees, volunteers and Mile-Hi Jeep Club members to clean, improve and repair a favorite local trail. This is the first coordinated stewardship effort that these two groups have teamed up for and it certainly will not be the last.
Every mile that is actively cleaned counts towards the goal of 25,000 miles. This challenge will be one of the largest collaborative trail stewardship events to ever happen in the country and everyone has the chance to be a part of that history.
The Dometic Mobile Cooling Ambassadors, the Tread Lightly! team and outdoor journalists from across the country will be also cleaning trails during their various adventures. If the chance to help make history was not enough of an incentive, Dometic is also going to be giving away a CFX powered cooler to one lucky volunteer who participates and posts about their efforts on social media.
Here’s how enthusiasts can participate and enter for a chance to win a CFX40W:
Clean up litter from an area you enjoy – this could be a trail, park or other area out in nature.
Take a photo or video of your clean up (see the Full Official Rules link below for requirements).
Post photo or video on social media with the caption of your choice.
Use #25000CleanMilesContest at the beginning of your post caption.
Tag @dometic in post.
They are now entered for a chance to win a Dometic CFX40W powered cooler!
