An unprecedented planetary project

Ten years ago, the first Cleanup Day was organised in Estonia. They united 4% of the local population to clean up their country. During this event, 10,000 tonnes of litter where collected during a few hours.

Today, 150 countries are mobilised to bring together 5% of the local citizens to collect as many litter as possible, in only one day: 21st september 2019, named World Cleanup day! We call upon all sectors of society to unite and to take action to clean our planet in one day: the World Cleanup Day.
