Landbell Group supports Rhine Clean Up

Germany is cleaning up its rivers! At this year’s Rhine Clean Up on 17th September, more than 35,000 volunteers were on hand to clear rubbish from the riverside of the Rhine, and its tributaries, the Moselle and Ruhr. A total of 320 tons of rubbish was collected during this campaign, including plastic, paper, glass, and numerous protective masks.

In all, 300 groups took part and the initiator Joachim Umbach was overwhelmed by this result: “These people have understood: this is not their garbage, but it is our planet.”

He hopes that this event will send a clear signal: “The aim is to bring about a change in awareness: garbage has to be disposed of properly, it doesn’t belong in nature.”

As an environmental service provider, Landbell Group naturally got involved in the clean-up. Our colleagues in Mainz helped clear rubbish from approximately two kilometres of the banks of the Rhine. And a total of 15 kilometres of the Rhine riverside were cleaned by over 600 volunteers in Mainz.

Encouraged by these successes, the initiators of the Rhine, Moselle and Ruhr Clean Ups immediately announced the date of the campaign for next year – Saturday, 11th September 2021 – and added the Main, Neckar, Lahn and Nahe rivers to the Clean Up.

Landbell Group will be there again on the Rhine in Mainz!
