EU Beach Clean World Oceans Day Cleanup

 

To increase the impact, this EU Beach Clean partnered with the Eneco Clean Beach Cup, Belgium’s largest annual beach clean event. And impactful it was. No less than 11.5 tonnes of litter was collected all along the Belgian coastline! Much of it were small items: pieces of fishing net, plastic bottle lids, cigarette butts… But also buoys, car tyres and even an old carpet ended up in the huge, transparent cylinders of the waste collection point, pilloried for all to see before going to the recycler’s at the end of the day.
