Czech republic will to participate in global action against waste
On World Cleanup Day, 21 September 2019, millions of people in over 150 countries will stand up against global waste pollution by cleaning up communities, parks, forests and beaches. Thousands of communities will act together as one, creating a powerful 'green wave' of cleanups spanning from New Zealand to Hawaii and lasting for 36 hours.
Miroslav Kubásek, team leader for World Cleanup Day in Czech republic noted: "During World Cleanup Day last year, nearly 18 million volunteers from 157 countries around the world managed to collect 82,000 tons of waste. By collecting garbage, volunteers are not only trying to improve the environment where they live, but also to show their interest in the future of our planet and set an example for others. Our common goal is to involve up to 5% of the population, i.e. 380 million people, in the future".
The aim of World Cleanup Day is not only to pick up waste, but to also raise awareness of the severity of the global climate crisis, drive behaviour change towards less consumption and induce companies, organisations and governments to adopt more sustainable environmental policies. World Cleanup Day is organised by Let's Do It World - a global movement that supports and connects a new generation of community leaders, who are ready to act together to find lasting solutions for the waste problem in their countries.
"Cleaning beaches and public areas sounds like something that has been done before. Our mission is not just about cleaning, but about actually stopping this problem once and for all. Humans are the only species who have managed to generate something that cannot be used by the rest of the ecosystem - waste. 80% of the plastic that floats today in our oceans has come from land, so we need to start there, working hand-in-hand with local communities,
" Heidi Solba, the President and Head of Network of Let's Do It World, explained.
Let's Do It World was born in the small Northern European country of Estonia in 2008, when 50,000 people cleaned up the entire country in just five hours. Since then, the model of cleaning a country in a single day has spread around the world, creating one of the fastest-growing grassroots movements ever.
