Monaco’s town hall and the new eco-restaurant Conscientiae are on a mission to clean up the streets of the Principality for World Clean Up Day. Here’s how you get can involved.
World Clean Up Day is taking place on Saturday 16th September, and it is hoped that residents in towns and cities of all sizes around the world will be heading out with a rubbish bag to collect wayside waste. Some will be doing it off their own backs, others will be joining in with collective projects and missions, such as the one organised for next weekend in Monaco.
The Mairie de Monaco, or town hall in English, has partnered with the wellbeing and sustainability focused Conscientiae restaurant in Port Hercule to encourage locals to participate in a morning litter pick.
For its part, Conscientiae, which officially opened its doors in late July in the former premises of Stars’N’Bars, has put out a call for “eco angels” that are willing to put aside a few hours to help clear the “waste thoughtlessly thrown onto our [Monaco’s] streets”.
The Mairie has issued a similar message, asking anyone interested in joining the pre-arranged route to send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The eventual group of cleaner-upers will depart the Marché de Monte-Carlo at 9.30am, passing through Casino Square, along Port Hercule and up the Avenue de la Porte Neuve to the town hall for 12pm, where a thank you reception will take place.
Make sure you’re never left out of the conversation.
