On 16 September 2023, it's that time again: World Cleanup Day! On this day, millions of people around the world are committed to making our planet a little cleaner. By cleaning up rubbish together, we make a difference to the environment. And we show that together we take responsibility for our planet.

World Cleanup Day began in Estonia in 2008 and has since grown into a global movement. In 2022, more than 180 countries already participated. A large turnout is expected again in 2023. The aim is to clean up as much waste as possible. This creates awareness about the importance of a clean and healthy living environment.

Clean-up campaigns are also being organised in various places in the Netherlands. Would you like to participate? Then check out the World Cleanup Day website for more information on the actions in your area. Together we can make the world a little more beautiful!
