What is Clean Games
*Clean Games are team-based competitions in cleaning green and coastal territories from litter and waste sorting. The participants use a mobile app, like a Pokemon Go, for picking up litter. Since 2014 more than 1000 game events have been held in 20 countries across the globe. Up to 1500 participants can participate in an event and collect up to 20 tons of garbage in 1 hour. On average, a participant collects 10 times more than on an ordinary cleanup.
