What is World Cleanup Day 2018?
World Cleanup Day 2018 is a potent “green wave” which will start in Japan and end in Hawaii, with hundreds of millions of people taking part in positive actions.
On September 15, 2018, people from 150 countries will unite to clean the world of trash. WCD 2018 is the largest civic action the the world has ever seen.
Who are we?
Let’s do It! Italy is the Italian delegation of the International Let’s do It! World movement. The movement was created in Estonia in 2008 with the ambitious intent to clean its own country in a single day. On that day, 50,000 people cleaned the streets, the city and the forests of 10,000 tons of illegal trash in just five hours.
From that moment on, many organizations, first in Europe and then all over the world, adhered to the network, which contains 130 countries.
Let’s do it World is a member of UNEP (United Nations Environment Program).
Starting from the idea that it is necessary to see the concept of ‘waste’, Let’s do It! Italy would like to modify the relationship between the society and the models of production and distribution, safeguarding the nature of the territory and rethinking the uses of resources and waste disposal.
