TAP TrashTalk begins with a single cart.
Here's a photo of the final build version of the first cart. Easy enough for a small woman or child to move around.
The cart has been tested, modified and has found a new home upon its distance-towing trailer. We've cleaned up more than 140 miles of roadside and moved well beyond our local roadways. Also do our local beach.
You can follow along with weekly progress work here.
A documentary film was done and is winning many awards.
We built a second smaller bike-tow cart and have started up a new bucket-exchange program.
See our whole on-line photo album here.
We've also been doing a lot of thinking about specialty collection tools.
We want collectors to have fun with fun higher-tech tools. Some initial ideas include:
Drone collectors - for farther away and hard to reach observable trash
Mini pistol crossbow 'fishing' collectors
Telescopic extension poles - with various attachments - with remote control triggers
Magnetic collectors - for small metal pieces of litter - fasteners, bottle caps, etc.
Brooms and small-litter pans - for broken glass, cigarette butts, aluminum caps & tabs, etc.
We've secured our domain and generated our CR code.
Perhaps most exciting is the initiative-branding solution.
Each cart will be 100% unique in creative-decorative design.
This initiative targets kids in school to:
Find a sponsor
Purchase a cart kit
Build the basic cart
Co-create a decoration design
Build the wall panels out of deconstructed aluminum beverage cans
Hit the road with their custom build - cleaning up our world and promoting the initiative
We can't wait to show you our first prototype cart. TAP will be its sponsor.
But we really can't wait to see your creativity!
We are actively seeking initiative:
Strategic software developers
We are looking for young energetic initiative leadership. We look to pass the reins to better qualified and motivated minds asap.
We are presently working with and learning how to best incorporate these advanced communication tools:
