World Cleanup Day: the Biggest Civic Action in the World
The global Let’s do It! World movement has the ambitious goal of cleaning the planet from illegal trash and addresses waste management and awareness issues.
“The fact that waste is one of the most burning problems in the world is not news to anyone. However, it’s easy to turn your back and say that it doesn’t affect me. In order to remove millions of tons of trash from nature it’s important to acknowledge that it can happen when 5% of the population of each country dedicates this one day to cleanup,” she added.
Due to the fact that most of the trash in the oceans comes from the mainland, it’s as much of a problem for the developed countries as it is for the developing countries.
