‘Carry Me Back’ program started

2022 Oct 28, 17:07, Kathmandu

‘Carry Me Back’ (CMB) program has begun for the autumn trekking season. Sagarmatha Pollution Control Committee (SPCC) has requested all trekkers trekking in the Everest Region to participate in the CMB program - a great way to reduce carbon footprint while trekking in the foothills of Mt. Everest.

The main aim of this program is to transport semi-processed recyclable materials, such as aluminum cans and PET bottles for recycling with voluntary support from trekkers. SPCC has set up a pickup station at Police Check Point, Misilung near Namche Bazaar where anyone interested can pick up approximately 1 kg bag on his/her way back to Kathmandu and drop the bags at our drop-off station located near Lukla gate.

The CMB program was initiated by Sagarmatha Pollution Control Committee and Sagarmatha Next in partnership with Sagarmatha National Park, Sagarmatha National Park Buffer Zone Management Committee,  Khumbu Pasanglhamu Rural Municipality, TARA AIR, and Blue waste to value.

In the last two trekking seasons, 3,250 trekkers have participated in the Carry Me Back program removing 5,300 kgs of waste from the mountains.
