There's 100 million tons of illegal garbage lying around the world. Waste is everywhere - in cities, beaches, oceans, forests. To change this we have to come together and create a real global change.

World Cleanup 2012

In 2012, from 24th of March until 25th of September, a series of cleanups will sweep over the globe, touching all continents and bringing together millions of people who will be cleaning up their homes.

Right at this moment we are seeking out for you! We are inviting people, organizations and movements in different countries who want to be part of this wonderful rebirth. All you have to do is stand up and make a decision to engage your community for one day in 2012. We are offering you:

  • a network of wonderful people and organizations,
  • all of our experience, care and support,
  • several technical tools for garbage mapping and communication.

Have a look at the countries section to see if there is already a group or organization who has started the initiative in your country. If not, then take this wonderful opportunity to be the one who sets things going. Read our advice on how to start a cleanup on the left side menu.

With each cleanup we will make this planet cleaner. With each garbage place that is mapped, with each park, street, city and country that will be cleaned, we will send out a message - the cleanliness, health and wellbeing of ourselves, of our countries and of this planet is in our own hands! Please contact our team of regional coordinators if you decide to join us.
