thousands of people across Germany volunteered on Saturday against the littering of the earth. At the “World Cleanup Day” (in German: World Facry Day), people in - according to organizers - 190 countries free streets, parks, beaches, forests, rivers, banks and seas from waste and plastic waste. Cigarette buttocks and crown corks are canceled and playgrounds are cleaned.

Central German City of the Waste Collection was Stuttgart this time. The core team of the German organization sent an official greeting message to the international teams via video stream at noon.

The organizers were surprised by the lively participation in Stuttgart despite the initially bad weather. "Many people understand that something has to change for a clean, healthy and plastic waste-free future," initiator Holger Holland told the German Press Agency. He spoke of 5000 actions nationwide and around 300,000 participants. Experience has shown that each of them collects 2.6 kilos of garbage, said Holland - more than half are usually plastics and plastic waste.
