Help Us Pick Up America with Thor

June 7, 2019

Why do we camp? Perhaps the biggest reason is to get out and enjoy the great outdoors. Morning hikes to watch cotton-candy-colored sunrises. Afternoon hikes to cascading waterfalls. Nights spent gazing at a vast sky full of stars. But what happens if those views aren’t so immaculate?

This year Thor and KOA are joining forces to keep the shared spaces we love the way they were meant to be – clean and pristine. Pick Up America presents a simple idea: we’re asking campers, RVers and outdoor enthusiasts to set a positive example by pledging to pick up trash wherever they find it. Pledge one bag or 10 – every bit helps!


Make Your Pledge

With a goal to clean up five tons of waste from the natural spaces we love it’s our hope to make each hike, ride and view more enjoyable.

Where can you pick up?

  • National and state parks
  • Biking/hiking trails
  • Rest stops
  • Picnic areas
  • Local parks
  • Roadsides (where it’s safe)
  • Your favorite outdoor spot

Make your pledge to help Pick Up America today and share your quest for a cleaner world using the hashtag #PickUpAmerica.
