Here’s a great example of how a small group of people started a movement and did something that seemed impossible:
Campaign “Let’s Do It!” – a grassroot initiative to clean up the country from illegal waste in just one day. There was over 10 000 tons of illegal waste lying around all over Estonia and it was an outrageous plan — to clean it all up on one day! On May 3, 2008 with help of 50 000 volunteers more than 10 000 tons of garbage gathered and Estonia was cleaned up from illegal waste.
The results of the action in Estonia:
• 22,5 million euros worth of work was done with the cost of 0.5 million euros;
• The State Forest Management Centre states: since 2008, waste dumping problem has decreased 75%;
• 10 000 tons of garbage collected from the nature and public areas, put into proper waste handling process;
• 40% of the garbage recycled – a record in Estonia.
