The Plastic Cup

With our upcoming beach clean-up campaign in mind, I recently read an article on the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) website that puts a bit of fun into cleaning up other people’s messes, while maintaining a healthy environment.

Such an event is known as The Plastic Cup, which sees various teams (known as Plastic Pirates) travelling along the Tisza River,  a major tributary of the Danube River, that passes through countries such as Ukraine, Hungary, Romania and Serbia, in boats made from recyclable materials, collecting plastic refuse that populate the waterway.

Doesn’t that sound like fun!

To read more about such a fun but noble event click on the following link  The world’s river and streams need more of this Plastic Cup

One can also visit the additional resources posted within the article such as the event’s official website and official story video trailer for more information.
