Waste Free Oceans is proud to announce its partnership with Let's Do It, Romania!, the biggest social movement in Romania, aiming to clean the country through environmental projects and social involvement.
On 20 April, WFO supported the Live Green Every Day event, by equipping 100 volunteers with waste bags and gloves. The activity was aimed at cleaning the banks of the Buzau and Basca rivers in the Nehoiu area.

This was the first of a series of clean-up actions that WFO will organise over the next months in cooperation with Let's Do It, Romania!, where the collected PET bottles will be recycled and transformed into new products.
The initiative is part of a bigger WFO project of hotspot clean-ups and remediation actions in the Danube river basin and connected waterways, which started last year in Bulgaria and is now working towards the Black Sea in Romania, in close cooperation with local and international partners. The project promotes the protection of the waters and shores and the importance of separate collection and recycling of waste.
