World Cleanup Day : 3,2 tons collected
A few hours later than the international event, St Barth Essentiel organized the 2018 edition of the World Cleanup Day on Sunday, September 16. This global event created in 2008 aims to collect as much waste as possible in a matter of hours. In St Barth, more then 3 tons (3,240 kg) of waste were collected by the sixty volunteers present .
Half of the waste collected are cans and bottles thrown likely through the windows of vehicles. It’s a shame!
