It is estimated that up to 37 million tonnes of plastic waste will reach the ocean annually by 2040. The annual #EUBeachCleanup raises awareness about marine pollution, and how our habits impact our ocean.
World Cleanup Day is a European success story. The first such event was organised in Estonia in 2008. Since then, the initiative has spread to 180 countries, becoming a landmark in community-led action to save the oceans worldwide. On World Cleanup Day 2022, 416 clean-ups took place in 41 countries.
At the 2022 #EUBeachCleanup in Singapore, more than 100 participants from Europe and Singapore joined hands to clean up a part of East Coast Beach. One skip-fill of litter was collected, including a huge fishing net and over 1,000 plastic bottles.
Join us at Tiny Beach / Tanah Merah Beach as we aim to top that record in 2023. Immerse yourself in nature and contribute to beating marine waste and saving our oceans.
