Meet Seth Orme and Paul Twedt: these two make up the 'Packing It Out' crew and are bringing a new flare to environmental stewardship. Their idea is to bring awareness to the current state of litter contamination on our nation's trails, and they got their start by hiking the Appalachian Trail and removing 1,100 pounds of trash. In this video, Gear Junkie follows Orme and Twedt as they collect trash on the Pacific Crest Trail. Check out more from filmmaker Wild Confluence Media here and GearJunkie here.
