World Clean-Up Day

On September 15, 2018, World Cleanup Day, people in 150 countries will stand up against the global trash problem and clean up waste, making it the biggest positive civic action the world has seen.

Imagine a powerful “green wave” starting in Japan and ending in Hawaii, with hundreds of millions of people taking positive action together on the very same day. We aim to unite the global community, raise awareness, and implement true change to achieve our final goal – a clean and healthy planet.
