LADIES INTERNATIONAL NETWORK KØBENHAVN
The amazing team collected over HALF A TON OF GARBAGE in just three hours! A total of 343 Cleanup Heroes - families, friends, neighbors, classmates, young and old - were on a mission to clean the streets and nature from trash and litter. And what a feat to come back with 518 kg of garbage!
The LEA team were delighted to see familiar faces from previous cleanups, and so many more who came to support the global movement in our local communities. The atmosphere was fantastic, and many happy faces were sent off with gloves, garbage bags and litter pickers.
Skeptics might think that the litter will come back in less than a weeks time, and maybe even overnight. But that is not a reason to give up - instead we can prove them wrong! The message is strong and clear as we join millions of people around the world in over 170 countries: ENOUGH with careless litter! It ends up in nature and in our precious seas.
To keep our Denmark ‘clean, green and beautiful’ we are calling for:
and yes, to start being politically correct and confident to ask litterers to kindly pick up their litter and use a trashcan!
More than ever, we need LINK and LEA women power to fight against trash pollution to save and protect Mother Earth.
A huge thank you to the Gentofte Kommune Team for their positivity, and for supplying the stations with cleanup equipment, posters and candies for the kids. Thank you to the two supercool garbage men who spent their day off supporting us by very visibly driving around a huge garbage truck collecting trash from all the stations. Thank you to all the establishments, schools and sports clubs that supported and promoted the event with posters and in social media. And a special mention to Michael H Bakery in Gentoftegade for offering free coffee to all cleanup participants!
