On September 21th, volunteers and partners worldwide will come together to celebrate World Cleanup Day and rid our planet of trash – cleaning up litter and mismanaged waste from our beaches, rivers, forests, and streets.
A powerful ‘green wave’ of cleanups will start in New Zealand and end 36 hours later in Hawaii, with millions of people working towards one goal: a clean and healthy planet.
In Ibiza, they also want to be part of the biggest global civic action. A day in which millions of people around the world in more than 150 countries come together for a cleaner and healthier world.
World Cleanup Day harnesses the power of everyday people to achieve incredible things by joining together. Its beauty lies in cooperation and collaboration: building bridges between disparate communities, and including all levels of society – from citizens, to business, to government.
The origin of World Cleanup Day
A world changing idea with a humble beginning. The movement was born 10 years ago in Estonia, when 4% of the population came out to clean the entire country of illegally dumped waste, in a matter of hours. This captured the imaginations of people worldwide, who were inspired to follow suit with the same ambitious ‘one country, one day’ formula.
This is the biggest global civic action to date and will attempt to clean the world from all types of waste in a single day!
World Cleanup Day encourage private and public institutions, local companies, NGO’s and the general public to join this movement and become aware of the global mismanaged waste problem. Together we will clean our beloved island!
