Virtual Clean Beach Days 2021
Do you also feel the desire to change something? JOIN US!
We partnered up with Planet Patrol, a community-focused, solution-orientated, non-profit organisation: a movement of people working for a cleaner future. They offer a FREE app to make litter picking and tracking very easy and accessible for everybody, no matter where you are! This is a great chance to organize virtual CLEAN BEACH DAYS during April 29th and May 2nd between all Boards & More brands around the world. Choosing a period of four days instead of only one day will hopefully maximize the effect and involve even more people.
1. Get ready
- Please download the free Planet Patrol app: Download
- Join the #SaveOurPlaygrounds Mission by clicking on ‘Missions’ in the menu bar and then clicking ‘Join Mission’
2. During the Clean Up
- The most important rule is to stay safe & healthy and comply with the current covid-19 pandemic hygiene regulations of your location
- Keep distance and wear a face mask if requested
- We recommend wearing reusable gloves or a litter picker
- Please do not use single-use plastic bags to collect litter
3. Step-by-step guide / How to record your collected trash
- When you see litter, open the Planet Patrol app, take a photo and tag the type and brand of litter
- Record everything in the #SaveOurPlaygrounds Mission inside the free Planet Patrol app
- Separate what you pick up into recyclables and non-recyclables
- Take pictures during and at the end of the event and share them via social media by using the hashtag #SaveOurPlaygrounds, tag @fanaticwindsurf and motivate your friends to also go out there and do good
But most importantly: have fun & spread the word!
If you don’t feel comfortable picking up litter you can still make a difference by using the Planet Patrol app to record what you find. The information you record is vital evidence that brands and government cannot ignore and takes us closer to developing solutions. All you have to do is take a photo and no touching needed! You can also find some litter picking health and safety advice on the planet patrol website here: Health and safety advice
We feel it is our responsibility to take action and do what we can to #SaveOurPlaygrounds before it is too late. And we invite everyone to join us in this endeavour!
Thank you for your support!
