World Cleanup Day
On 18 September 2021 it is World Cleanup Day. On this day volunteers and partners worldwide come together to rid our planet of trash. The campaign is focused on cleaning up litter and mismanaged waste from our beaches, rivers, forests and streets.
World Cleanup Day on 19 September 2020 united 11 million people across 166 countries. All these environmental heroes came out despite the challenges of 2020. Since 2018, World Cleanup Day has brought together millions of people for the biggest waste collection day in human history. In 2018, 17.6 million and in 2019, 21.2 million environment heroes joined in on an epic 36-hour green wave of cleanups across the globe – beginning in New Zealand and traveling around the world before ending in Hawaii.
Power of people
World Cleanup Day harnesses the power of people around the world 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.
