Stand up and make yourself strong for clean waters. With our SUP Clean Up campaign we called every citizen of Hamburg and Germany to do something for their local environment and their lakes and rivers. More than 30 people followed the action. The conditions were rough on that day. We have had a lot of wind and waves on the Außenalster but everybody was highly motivated. The result after 2 hours collecting rubbish out of the water - 308 kg garbage. Thanks to Jongens GmbH for discharging rubbish, to Surfrider Foundation and the team of Clean up your Alster for supporting with hand glows and the men power.
With our action, we wanted to draw attention above all to the amount of plastic waste on coasts and oceans.
