Indeed, on the day of the event, I’m surprised to find only two other people at the meeting point: Lena and Nik, another volunteer from the organization ABS. Nevermind how many we are! Let’s clean this dirty place! Still motivated, we went to the place to clean with our 20 trash bags and begun to remove every garbage we could find. We expected to go forward but the place was so dirty that we just stayed in the same place
Finally, we successfully went forward and began to clean in the river. Here, we were surprised to find a lot of unusual things such as toys, clothes, bags, hats, card games… In the end, we cleaned for around 3 hours and filled 9 bags of 130 liters. Even if we know that it’s just a little area we are glad that only three of us remove so much garbage in one day. However, this kind of event should not forget us that the main garbage doesn’t come directly from the citizens. That means that
Anyway, cleaning days as these one are still a necessary and interesting step to make the planet a bit cleaner. We weren’t a lot but we are happy that we did our part!
See you soon in another event to make our planet a better place to live 😉
