Clean-up actions are only really effective when these preconditions apply: 1. Lots of plastics. 2. Easily accessible.
In many rivers, ports, beaches and of course on land both of them are present.
Clean-ups must always come after a collaboration with local waste treatment is established. There’s no need to clean up if the waste is not properly handled. Local people, such as community-groups, women’s groups, sports-teams, religious communities, schools and others can be challenged to do the actual clean-up. If you spend a Saturday cleaning up a river, a river-bank, a beach or a park, you will probably never ever throw away plastics in nature!
