The Port of Tallinn participated in the world’s biggest civic action

The Port of Tallinn team joined World Cleanup Day and cleaned up the area near Tallinn Old City harbor to prevent trash getting into the sea.

“Through this activity, we, in the Port of Tallinn want to support the world’s biggest civic action and protect the nature,” said Valdo Kalm, the CEO of Port of Tallinn. “During three hours 40 of our employees together with the members of the management board collected ca 1,6 tons of waste consisting of  general domestic waste, tires, electronics, metals and other types of waste that was dumped on the shore close to the harbor area.” 

On World Cleanup Day, 15 September 2018, millions of volunteers from thousands of communities, organizations and likeminded corporates have united and cleaned up their roads, parks, cities, beaches, forests, and riversides in the fight against one of the most pressing environmental problems: mismanaged waste.

World Cleanup Day is being propelled by the civic movement Let’s do it! World, which has been initiating cleanup actions across 113 countries throughout the last decade, with over 20 million volunteers taking part in total. World Cleanup Day organisers are hoping to engage millions of volunteers during the 30-hour cleanup marathon and at least double the number of people engaged in the cleanup actions so far. 

The Port of Tallinn has participated in the cleanup actions since 2008 and helped to clean the seaside public areas around its harbours.

The Let’s do it! World movement began in the small Northern European tech-savvy country of Estonia in 2008, when 50,000 people came together to clean up the entire country in just five hours. 

The year 2018 marks 100 years since the founding of the Republic of Estonia. World Cleanup Day 2018 is Estonia’s biggest gift to the world on its 100th anniversary. More information about the centenary events can be found at www.EV100.ee
