Blue Bucket Day with Uddevalla Energy: 750 Liters of Trash Cleared from Uddevalla’s Beaches
The collaboration between Uddevalla Energy and The Perfect World Foundation has resulted in a successful and memorable Blue Bucket Day. On this day, an impressive 750 liters of trash was collected from Uddevalla’s beaches.
During the beach cleanup, we found everything from paper, glass, and metal to plastic, food waste, and general waste, as well as more unusual items like iron pipes and wooden planks.
“Plastic poses a particular problem when it ends up in our oceans. It doesn’t break down, but remains for decades, harming marine life and polluting our beautiful beaches. The fact that we managed to collect over 350 liters of plastic packaging and hard plastic is an achievement we’re incredibly proud of,” says Daniel Wilke from The Perfect World Foundation.
“We hope to be able to do this more often, perhaps every year, and further develop the concept by inviting our customers and partners to join us,” says Anders Gillerstedt, waste coordinator at Uddevalla Energy. “Blue Bucket is a great initiative for our beaches and oceans, and we hope we’ve inspired more people to get involved.”
Every piece of trash removed from the beach helps protect and preserve our oceans for future generations.
