For Julie Sondecker, every day is Earth Day… literally. When she noticed a bunch of trash while on a hike after all the Memorial Day Weekend festivities, Julie picked up two giant handfuls and still couldn’t collect everything. So she decided to challenge herself to 365 days of hiking and picking up trash, and documenting what she found on Instagram (@365daysofhiking). The Ann and Roy Butler Hike-and-Bike Trail is among Julie’s favorite places to hike and pick up trash in Austin. She has even done a few water clean-ups via kayak! But the best part is sharing her passion for the Trail with friends, who now pick up trash when they hike and run the Trail, too.
