Waste Free Oceans Celebrates Global Recycling Day with Successful Cleanup Events in Brussels and Cologne

March 18th, 2024 - Brussels; Cologne

Waste Free Oceans (WFO), in collaboration with partners Cohabs and Greendot, marked Global Recycling Day with impactful cleanup events in Brussels and Cologne. As advocates for a cleaner, healthier planet, WFO organised these events to raise awareness about the importance of sorting waste for recycling, particularly focusing on plastic waste, which significantly contributes to ocean pollution.

The cleanup events saw enthusiastic participation from volunteers who braved the elements with smiles on their faces, demonstrating their commitment to environmental stewardship. Despite the challenging weather conditions, volunteers joined hands to clean up the streets of Brussels and Cologne, making a tangible difference in their local communities.

The cleanup events not only contributed to cleaner streets but also served as a platform to educate the public about the significance of recycling and the detrimental effects of plastic pollution on marine ecosystems. By engaging with volunteers and community members, WFO aims to inspire collective action and foster a culture of environmental consciousness.

Looking ahead, Waste Free Oceans is committed to organising more cleanup events and awareness campaigns to continue advocating for environmental conservation and waste reduction. By working collaboratively with partners and volunteers, WFO strives to amplify its impact and effect positive change on a global scale.
