World Environment Day 2021: "Every Can Counts"

Today is World Environment Day and EU countries plan to spread awareness by encouraging citizens to recycle empty cans of soft drinks and beer in an effort to keep public spaces clean.


Men and women with big, green backpacks are crisscrossing Europe today. Their mission is to encourage citizens to recycle empty cans of soft drinks and beer in order to keep public spaces clean.

A part of the initiative "Every Can Counts", the EU hopes to raise awareness of two issues: World Environment Day, but also the increase in pollution in public spaces, which was observed during the pandemic, where public spaces functioned as exclusive meeting places.

The campaign will take place simultaneously in 15 countries and 19 locations. More specifically, in the framework of the European Recycling Tour 2021, young people with backpacks will appear in Greece, England, Austria, Serbia, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Montenegro, the Netherlands, France, Poland, Romania, Slovenia and Spain.

From as at the Millennial agora, we wish you a 𝐇𝐚𝐩𝐩𝐲 𝐖𝐨𝐫𝐥𝐝 𝐄𝐧𝐯𝐢𝐫𝐨𝐧𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭 𝐃𝐚𝐲!
