Over 2 tons of garbage collected by June!
In June, during a similar field action, when the beaches from Świnoujście through Międzyzdroje to Dziwnów were covered by cleaning, in one day the Nasza Ziemia Foundation and volunteers from this area collected over half a ton of rubbish, including over 130 kg of plastic waste. In the entire PreStart of this year's Campaign in May, we have already collected over 2 tons of rubbish!
Plastic? I reduce. Resigns. I file.
Each year, the Clean up the World-Poland campaign is carried out under a different slogan.
With the slogans, we want to draw attention to the fact that ... we litter in places where we usually relax: in parks, forests, on beaches. In 2020, we will pay special attention to plastic. Research shows that Poles consume large amounts of it on a daily basis. Disposable shopping bags, plastic bottles, straws, cups ... these are just the tip of the iceberg. And yet we can consider reducing or even giving up some plastic products.
We hope that the slogan of 27 Actions will inspire Poles to change in their everyday life, and when going on a trip, vacation, picnic or for a walk, we will take back with us and properly dispose of all used and unnecessary waste: from a drink bottle to disposable wipes .
