Cleaning Estonia

A friend just sent me this. It’s great and gives a glimpse of Estonian character and culture. It’s quite a contrast to their neighbor to the East. Russia has the same problem but has not yet addressed it (and probably won’t any time soon).


“Half of Estonia’s territory is forest. Yet, these forests are plagued with a traditional acceptance of being the country’s dump sites. Watch how a group created a grassroots initiative to rid Estonia of 10,000 tons of trash littering its forests and natural environment. In one day, over 50,000 volunteers – or 4% of Estonia’s population – cleaned their country in 5 hours.”
