Mountain climber removes over 8 tonnes of waste from Mount Everest

On one of her climbs up Mount Everest, French mountain climber and guide Marion Chaygneaud-Dupuy, aged 39, was shocked at the amount of rubbish she found. Passionate about sports and nature, Marion realised she needed to act to save the site.


So, in 2016 she created Clean Everest, which so far has removed over 8 tonnes of waste – mainly plastic bottles, drink cans, abandoned tents and oxygen cylinders. According to Marion, pollution on Mount Everest affects the quality of the water used by about 2 billion people living in China and India.

Em uma de suas escaladas ao Monte Evereste, a alpinista francesa Marion Chaygneaud-Dupuy, de 39 anos, ficou inconformada com a quantidade de lixo que encontrou. Apaixonada pelo esporte e pela natureza, Marion entendeu que precisava agir para recuperar o local.
