Summary

Under the supervision of a project manager from NL Cares, we will be cleaning up litter. We do this in the fresh air and it's a nice way to relax

Detailed description

Activity

The beach, forests and streets in The Hague are full of litter. Single-use plastic forms the largest group of waste, especially on the coast. Recognizable? It is estimated that if we continue like this, there will be more plastic than fish floating in the oceans by 2050. We're not going to let that happen, are we? Then help us keep The Hague clean together!

Under the supervision of a project manager from NL Cares, we will be cleaning up litter. We do this in the fresh air and it is a nice way to meet your fellow townspeople. Due to the corona measures, everyone is divided into teams of 2 people. A team leaves every five minutes. After registering you will receive an email with your exact starting time. In this way, together we ensure a cleaner The Hague in a safe and responsible manner.


Location

We meet in front of Theater de Vaillant. See also this link: https://goo.gl/maps/xHtUVpLiQC5Jn8hS8


Impact

The amount of litter that is released annually in the Netherlands is estimated at 50 million kilos. It is now a daily image in many places in the city: torn open garbage bags, food scraps and plastic on the street. Plastic in particular is a big problem. It hardly disappears from nature and ends up in the sea en masse. This large pile of plastic is harmful to marine animals, but also to humans and the environment. Despite the growing number of initiatives around litter, it remains a major problem and is one of the top 3 biggest annoyances people have about the neighbourhood. According to psychological research, a cleanup is healthy for the mind. In addition, such a cleaning action ensures that the chance that you will leave a mess behind is much smaller.


Will you help?

Would you like to help your fellow citizens to make The Hague a cleaner city? Then register below via the 'register' button. The cleanup will continue from 2 registrations.


Corona measures

During the activity we provide waste bags, gloves, disinfectant and dispose of the waste bags afterwards. If you want to wear a mouth cap during the cleanup, you can bring your own.
