World Cleanup Day 2020

World Cleanup Day is back! On the 19th of September 2020, millions of people across the globe will unite to clean up the world and raise awareness of the problems caused by mismanaged waste.

On 19 of September, volunteers and partners worldwide will come together to free our planet of trash – cleaning up litter from our beaches, rivers, forests, and streets.

Last year, 21 million people in 180 countries took part in World Cleanup Day. It was the biggest civic action in human history, where over 100 000 tons of waste were collected.

World Cleanup Day harnesses the power of everyday people to achieve incredible things by joining together. Its beauty lies in cooperation and collaboration: building bridges between disparate communities, and including all levels of society - from citizens, to business, to government.

World Cleanup Day is coordinated by Let's Do It World - a movement that gathers organizations across the world for a cleaner, more sustainable planet by propagating zero waste and circular economy principles.
