Previous events and original post 11 September: I’ve posted before now about “clean-up” events where the public join organizers to pick up litter from beaches and coastlines, barrancos and protected reserves, and I hope it has answered some criticisms that no-one ever does anything about debris left behind by bathers or hikers and the like. These clean-up operations are organized by various groups, some Governmental like the Cabildo or Ayuntamientos, others political like party grouping events, and others environmental. The point is that there’s a lot of it going on!

Today I’ve come across two more related to “World Cleanup Day” on Saturday 15 September, and so I’ll start this post with them, and then update it with any others I come across.
