There is so much plastic floating in our oceans that sea creatures get caught in it and die miserably. But also in our immediate surroundings, in our cities, in our mountains and in our forests and rivers there is garbage, a lot of garbage.
Animals eat this waste and die in agony, it pollutes our groundwater and in some cases does not decompose for many decades.
Garbage belongs in the designated trash cans and recycled if possible. And you can help to make the world a better place in a small way and of course also Life-Score Punkte in blau sammeln.
To do this, you have numerous opportunities alone or with other people to collect trash and dispose of it properly.
This challenge is also a part of the Timeless Challenge!

Different ways to collect garbage
For many years, communities and municipalities have been looking for people who collect trash together and unload it at the recycling centers or building yards. This is often rewarded with a social gathering with drinks and a snack.
I live in Bavaria and we have an annual "Ramadama". The word comes (probably) from the Bavarian phrase "rama derma" which means "we clean up". You meet with other community members, are assigned an area and a large trash bag by the community, and you're ready to go. You search for garbage in your area, throw it into the garbage bag and then bring it back to the building yard or to specially marked collection points. This usually takes a morning and usually takes place on Saturday. As a reward, many communities give you some sausages or vegetarian food and a drink.
I really enjoy participating in the Ramadama, because the atmosphere is great and it's fun. Most of the time, the communities publish the dates in the local media (online and print media).
Plogging usually involves a few runners getting together to collect trash while running. But there are also many people who run alone and collect the garbage on their running route. Often plogging is done in the mountains, along rivers or in the forest. Actually, this trend originates from Scandinavia, but has long since found its way into our country. We think it's a really great thing!
And then there are private organizers of real waste collection networks. One example is the network "Trash Hero"which offers and coordinates trash collection events in various cities around the world. Unfortunately, there are few branches in Germany so far, but why don't you establish a local branch? Nature will thank you for it!
