The 23rd edition of the Campaign "Clean Up the World - Poland" was carried out under the slogan "Pass it on… Second life of trash". This year Our Earth Foundation promoted the respect for the resources and the avoidance of the waste production. Furthermore we encouraged the public to reflect on their everyday impact on the environment. For this purpose we promoted activities that can give a second life to things:
- giving what you do not need to someone else who will need it,
- selling unnecessary things in flea market,
- upcycle things you no longer have to use. You can create, convert old thing into something new.
The Final of the 23rd Campaign took place traditionally on the third weekend of September. Over 200 volunteers cleaned the polluted areas of the Park Arkadia in Warsaw.
There were many local events which are described on our Website. In this year's campaign took part over 135 thousands participants, more than a half of them were children from elementary and secondary school. Over 850 institutions (municipal offices, county offices and schools) got involved into local actions. About 300 illegal dumps were eliminated and more than 160 thousands kilos of waste were segregated. Cleaning up actions were followed by over 2,3 thousands educational activities. We distributed 10 thousand posters about the campaign to local coordinators. Via media Clean Up the World – Poland reached over 22,5 milion people in the whole country.
This year's action would't have taken place without the support of our Partners – Schenker Sp z o. o., Vastint Poland Sp. z o. o., Grupa Żywiec S. A., Fundacja ProKarton oraz EKO-PAK. We are very grateful for the help and commitment of partners and participants of Clean Up the World – Poland.
