Growing up, as I would prepare to go for a run or head to school, I would always see a man in a safari outfit picking up bottles and cans as he walked along the street…I must admit, I thought this was weird. But fast forward many years, and I think this has stuck with me, because now I am the weird one and I […]
Once again we met at Pegnitz ground here in Nuremberg for World Cleanup Day. It was great to see so many motivated people who are interested in keeping our shared parks and picnic grounds free from rubbish. This year we found once again many of the usual items like bottle caps, cigarette butts, bottle caps, plastic packaging which filled up 9 bags, alcohol bottles, grill […]
It was great to get out and about and enjoy the outdoors at Rotsee near Nuremberg. What wasn’t so great was the amount of rubbish glass bottles, plastic, wrappers, bottle caps, sand toys, balls, thongs and cigarette butts we found. Thanks to beachcleaner, supriders, wastefree oceans, surfrideurope and many others for their time and energy in helping raise awareness and to keep our nature clean. […]
We not only do cleanups, but we also do weekly workshops or whenever we can or are requested. The workshops are based on the open source project from precious plastic. We collect plastic from cleanups, hairdressers, and burger bars. Students also bring in plastic from the yellow bin at home or school. We then wash and clean the plastic, shred it or cut it into […]
Today we did another clean up at Marienberg park in Nuremberg. It was great to see so many people enjoying the last of the sun coming into the cooler weather while helping keep the area clean. We found bikes, tires, dangerous chemicals, plastic wrappers, containers, bottles, cigarette butts, bottle caps and much more. Lets keep our parks, beaches and playgrounds litter free.

While in Bali, Indonesia we headed to Sanur for a few days and enjoyed many hours in the hotel swimming pool. On one of the days we decided to head to Werdhapura Beach. It was lovely with a relaxing feel, it had a restaurant and it was pretty clean. I went for a swim with my son, and after a while things kept hitting me […]
In 2019 we were in Bali for a wedding and stayed at Ketewel Beach for a few days. The first day we went there it was just amazing to see how much rubbish ends up on the beach. We found tires, shoes, toothpaste tubes, textiles and lots of plastic cups, straws and other items.
