Celebrating World Cleanup Day
POSTED ON September 12, 2023 | BY Zters
Every year, on the third Saturday of September, people from all over the world unite for a common cause – cleaning up our planet. World Cleanup Day, celebrated on September 16th this year, is a global initiative that transcends borders, cultures, and backgrounds, reminding us of our collective responsibility to protect the environment.
ZTERS is committed to sustainability. We are always discovering new ways to implement more eco-friendly practices and see this pursuit as a continual process. After all, we should all be looking to improve in every facet of our lives and work.
World Clean Up Day is a reminder that we’re all in this together.
What is World Cleanup Day?
Since its inception in 2018, World Cleanup Day has always been more than just picking up litter; it’s a powerful call to action. It emphasizes the urgency of addressing the pollution and waste problem that plagues our planet. The day serves as a stark reminder that each one of us can make a significant impact when we work together.
The impact of World Cleanup Day goes beyond the immediate clean-up efforts. It fosters a sense of global community and environmental consciousness that can extend far beyond World Cleanup Day.
How to Contribute
If you haven’t already, consider participating in World Cleanup Day this year. You can join a local event or organize one yourself.
