This year’s National Beach Clean-Up day in Taiwan took place on June 13th, and as we do every year, TITOMA and friends headed towards Qianshuiwan to the north of Taipei.
It was scorching hot that day, but we, along with the help of 100 volunteers, managed to gather 611 kg of trash. Here are some photos
It all started at 3 PM when we gathered in front of the beach.
We handed out all the necessary tools
And off we went to clean the beach
After one hour, trash was starting to pile up
We removed every piece of trash we found, no matter how big it was
We mean it
By 6 PM we had gathered 611kg of trash
This was an excellent opportunity for everyone involved to socialize and meet new people, but most importantly to create awareness on how much work we still need to do to treat nature with respect.
