Tomorrow large groups of driven citizens come together to remove litter from our planet. With 150 countries participating this year it can been described as “the biggest civic action in human history.”
Plastic attack events are also being organised across the world as part of ‘World Plastic Attack Day’ happening on 15/09/2018.
Both actions are a powerful testament to the achievements that become possible when humankind unites in the hope of attaining a noble ideal for world change. The cleanups take place on beaches, rivers, forests, and streets around the world.
We, here at The Universal Sea, particularly urge people to consider how the plastic waste in urban areas impacts water reserves. We do need to act NOW!!!

September 15, 2018 – Berlin Demonstration:
On Saturday, 15 September, a demonstration against plastic waste is going to start at 12:30 at the Museumsinsel/Bodestraße and ends at Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz. The Bye Bye Plastik demonstration has a controversial approach: by spreading the plastic waste instead of collecting it the organisers try to make people more aware of the issue. This event already has a force behind it, with over 14,000 people engaged with the Facebook event.
Happy World Cleanup Day and Plastic Attack Day, let’s make a difference!
