A mophie-Powered Mission to Save Everest.
Powered by mophie juice packs along the way, Martin Edstrom and his team set out on his mission to Mount Everest. So how is this expedition different from any other trek up the world’s largest mountain?

Thanks to Martin and his team, they successfully collected over 8 TONS of garbage left by irresponsible hikers and tourists. Holy Batman, that’s a lot of trash! Check out Martin and company's entire journey on the Saving Mount Everest Project’s blog.
