Why is their activity important for river Tisza?

Need an example? The Tisza is the tributary of river Danube, the river they use as an example to explain the importance of their noble mission: “It may start with small rivers further inland that connect to other rivers, but they eventually reach the sea. The Danube, Europe’s longest river, flows through ten countries before reaching the Black Sea after traversing 2,850 kilometers. Unfortunately, not just ships, fish, and plant remains to make their way to the sea via rivers. Different types of plastic waste – particles hardly visible to the human eye and yogurt pots or full plastic bags in equal measure – ultimately find their way to the ocean.”

In conclusion

The Plastic Pirates: Go Europe! initiative is not only an important project that works to reduce plastic pollution in Europe. It is an example of how people, especially young people, can work together to make a difference in the environment. Through its activities, the organization can raise awareness of the issue, provide resources to help people get involved, and inspire young people to become leaders in the fight against plastic pollution.
