World Cleanup Day initiated by Estonia was a great success


Around 20 million people in 180 countries and territories joined the World Cleanup Day campaign initiated by Estonia at beaches, streets, forests and parks in a global effort to clean up waste from public spaces and nature.

Compared with last year, participants in the World Cleanup Day in Estonia increased by threefold to around 28,038, organizers of the initiative told BNS on Wednesday.

At least 333,000 liters of litter were collected in Estonia, including some 1.1 million cigarette butts, mostly by students and kindergarten children.

World Cleanup Day is the largest single peacetime civic action against waste in human history. It’s aim is raising awareness of the scale of the global mismanaged waste crisis threatening the environment and the lives of millions of people and living beings.

Let’s Do It World (LDIW), the organisation behind World Cleanup Day, is an international NGO headquartered in Estonia that tackles environmental challenges related to the global mismanaged solid waste problem by mobilizing millions of positive-minded people to participate in coordinated local and global actions.

LDIW has member organizations and representatives in over 150 countries.

The next World Cleanup Day will take place on Sept. 19 2020.
