On 9 December 2017, 57 trash heroes were gathering at Yangon Sailing Club. From 3:00 to 5:00 pm, they cleaned the trashes around the Inya Lake. During this event, they were divided into 2 groups: earth team and aqua team in which they are mainly focused on around Inya Lake and University of Yangon. Alongside with Trash Hero T-shirts, heroes collected the trashes as estimated (205) kilos.

Do you want to be a HERO?

Trash Hero Myanmar

You know hero is a person who is admired for having done something very brave or having achieved something great. This is a definition from Cambridge dictionary.


Anyone can be a Trash Hero, it is simple. A Trash Hero wastes as little as possible, reuses as much as possible, and works to preserve and improve the spaces they are in, wherever they may be.

Most of the human beings pay no attention and neglect the simple things to do although they prefer to live in a sanctuary place throughout their lives. While solving the global garbage problem may be complex, knowing what to do about the garbage is relatively simple: PICK IT UP.

After the event, we asked Phone Kyaw Moe [email protected] to share the reflection of the day. You can also find the Burmese Version via this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ybY4UksNhA
