The Project

Mountains are exceptional. People from all over the world come to interact with this natural environment, whether for skiing, mountain-biking, hiking or simply discovering its exceptional panoramas. Where there is human activity, there is littering which endangers species and habitats, as well as humans, indirectly. Plastic, for example, breaks into smaller and smaller pieces within decades and can eventually enter the food chain. Through lakes, streams and rivers, the mountains are also directly connected to the oceans. The project will organise 7 clean-up operations in mountainous regions of northern Italy between April 2021 and September 2022. In addition, each event will seek to engage with and educate volunteers taking part, as well as others in the area, about the impact of litter on wildlife and habitats. An on-going campaign will be run on social media and via media interviews.
