Beach Clean in Sweden

During the entire school year students that participated in the Erasmus+ project Blast the Plast studied
the issue of plastic pollution in cooperation with their partner schools in Sweden and Iceland.

One week the Swedish team decided to join the “håll Sverige rent – skräpplockardagen”, it ́s a day when an environmental organization encourage you to pick up garbage to keep our country clean. So, we cleaned a beach near our school. At first sight we thought the beach was clean, but when we started to search for garbage we found a lot of it.

It was a total weight of 27.2kg! We threw away the garbage that couldn ́t be reused, at the recycling station.
