It all started in Estonia…
Right now there are 100 million tons of illegal garbage lying around the world. And every day, we add more. It’s time to wake up and turn things around. That’s the reason for World Cleanup 2012. Since the Cleanup movement strted in Estonia, 2 million people in 16 different countries have participated in cleanup actions.
From 24th March 2012 until 25th September 2012, a series of cleanups will sweep the globe, touching all continents and bringing together millions of people who will be cleaning up their towns and cities.
Right at this moment we are seeking you! We are inviting people, organizations and movements in different countries to be part of this wonderful initiative. All you have to do is to make a decision to engage your community for one day in 2012.
Check the countries section to see if someone has already started a Cleanup initiative in your country. If not, then be the one who gets things going. The website has advice on how to start a cleanup. Each cleanup and each person cleaning will make our planet cleaner.
Join the World Cleanup initiative and organize a cleanup day in your home country in 2012: www.letsdoitworld.org
Report garbage in your own town on the World Cleanup map: www.letsdoitworld.org/wastemap
With each garbage spot on the mapped, with each park, street, city and country that is cleaned, a message will be sent: the cleanliness, health and wellbeing of ourselves, of our countries and of this planet is in our own hands. Let’s do it!
