Volunteers joined a global campaign “Let’s Do It – Clean up the World in Just One Day” on Saturday to clean city streets, parks, picnic spots, river beds and lakes. Coordinator of the campaign, Junuz Elkaz, said it was the 6th volunteer campaign organized in Bosnia.
“Turnout has been increasing by the year. Communal companies and local authorities also supported the campaign,” he said.
He said the campaign was implemented in more than 70 municipalities and cities since April 22, Earth Day. Thousands of volunteers collected hundreds of tons of waste.
This year’s campaign was supported by Eko život d.o.o., Konzum, UN volunteers, UNDP, Sarajevski Kiseljak, Almy d.o.o., Podravka and the Una-Sana Canton’s ministry of zoning and environmental protection. Bosnian Olympic Committee supported the project financially and logistically.
