World cleanup day: Why we celebrate

What is World Cleanup Day?

World Cleanup Day is an annual event that takes place on the third Saturday of September, uniting millions of people worldwide to clean up litter and waste from their local environments. This global initiative aims to raise awareness about the negative impacts of litter on the environment and inspire people to take action to keep their communities clean and green.

The first World Cleanup Day was held in 2008 in Estonia, where 50,000 volunteers came together to clean up the entire country in just five hours. Since then, the event has grown to become a global movement, with millions of people from over 180 countries participating each year.

Why World Cleanup Day?

The significance of World Cleanup Day is in its ability to bring people together from all walks of life, cultures, and backgrounds, to work towards a common goal of making our planet a cleaner, healthier place to live.

It helps people understand that individual actions can make a significant impact on the environment and encourages everyone to take responsibility for their actions and the impact they have on the world around them.

Why do we engage in World Cleanup Day at Recycledge?

There are many reasons why we engage in World Cleanup Day every year.

  1. Litter and waste pose a significant threat to our environment and our health. Trash not only ruins the aesthetic appeal of our surroundings, but it can also harm wildlife, pollute our waterways, and release toxic chemicals into the air.
  2. It provides an opportunity for people to come together and build a sense of community, connect and share ideas, and work towards a common cause.
  3. It raises awareness about the importance of waste management and encourages people to adopt sustainable practices in their everyday lives.
