On Saturday, the 14th September, I have organized the
together with Project Blue Sea, Ökowerk Berlin and the initiative Wir-Berlin.
I would like to thank all active helpers that you’ve done such a great work!
We were 20 active, this is absolutely great!
We have collected 25 bags full of garbage, which is a huge success!
And it was fun and nice to met you!
Again thank you very much and until next time!
Today, on the World Environment Day,
the 5th June 2013,
I have collected on a small slipway in Berlin,
on the river Havel,
in about half an hour
the washed up plastic waste:
Approx. 40 pellets
52 swab tubes
25 bottle caps
3 fireworks rocket fuse protection
countless candy plastic packaging
1 can of deodorant
Plastic cup remains
Small plastic waste to 3cm
some larger plastic parts
this plastic waste will not end up in the sea.
However, when I think of how long the Havel is ….
My call: if you find waste at the river,
Please pick it up. Thank you

Plastic does not belong into the sea, whether in macro-, micro-or nano-dimensions!
Micro plastic is finally recognized as a growing problem. From larger plastic garbage parts in the sea constantly creates endless microplastic and it’s getting more and more. But that we knowingly, redundant and avoidable lead microplastic directly into the sea, immediately has to be stopped. In scrubs, toothpaste and other cleaning products microplastic particles are added and after use they directly goes via wastewater into the sea.
