Let’s sweep it clean

On July 30th we got together to clean the Vondelpark in Amsterdam. Our motto was: Take 3 pieces of rubbish when you leave the beach, park or…anywhere! … to remove plastic pollution and inspire a new generation to protect our oceans.

The frustration:
The amount of trash that is left behind in the park after a hot summer day.

The fact:
When plastic is left in landfills, it is at risk of blowing away and ending up in rivers or oceans which contributed in creating a big “plastic soup” almost the size of Russia.

The idea:
We go clean the Vondelpark by collecting all the trash that is left behind and explain to as many people as we can, why this is so important.

The hope:
We hope to make people more aware of the trash they leave behind by explaining them where it goes and what harm it does.

Our big surprise was that we came to a clean park! We couldn’t be prouder to be Amsterdammers on that day. With a lot of positive energy we made a fun night of it with drinks and snacks.
