Human Trash Parade

06/07/2021

Last Saturday, Clic Recycle and Bûmerang organized a "Human Trash" parade at the Arc de Triomphe in Barcelona ...

We started the parade at the Arco de Triunfo, continued it on Barceloneta beach and then went to Restaurant Cacho, where we did quizz, prize draws, etc.

Surely you saw a group of people dressed head to toe in trash ? Yes, it was us! And imagine that each of us carried 6 kg of waste on him ...

Those who were present were able to learn more about the impact of single-use plastic, were able to win surprise prizes and certainly left with more knowledge about waste management.

Did you know that humans actually produce on average 2 BILLION tonnes of waste per year?
More over, car tires are one of the primary sources of microplastics. They are made of synthetic rubber, which produces plastic particles as it wears down. 11 million tires' worth of these particles enter the ocean every year.  51 trillion pieces of microplastics are floating on the ocean right now.

Look what we found in just one street, it's amazing! We even found cans abandoned under a trash ...

When you are outside, do not throw away your waste! Keep them while waiting to cross a trash, there are some on every street corner so you won't have to wait long ...



Did you know that a plastic bag takes 400 years to decompose? The Sagrada Familia has been under construction for 139 years and will take less time to complete ...

Thanks to Bûmerang who organized this parade with us, to 90.10 Project, to Usar y Reusar, to Cacho and to everyone who participated! We hope to be able to organize other events with you!

Without awareness, there will be no change!
