A pearl of the Baltics, an adornment of the seacoast, the native land of Neringa‘s fairy tales – these are the words repeated frequently by the people who were affected by the charm of the Curonian Spit. Our spit changes its facing annually. It always has an original beauty: in spring and summer, blushing the leaves of the sand plains forests in autumn, or spreading a friable snow cover in winter.
However, the beaches of Neringa needs our help to reduce litter. Litter on our beaches is also hazardous to people so we all have a part to play in turning the tide on litter. Trash and litter along our coasts and in our waterways can be harmful to our health, the environment. Most trash that ends up in the water begins its journey on land.
Rupi team and friends volunteered to pick up more than 14 km of coastline and waterways and hauled away all the trash they found. No matter how much we get off the beach that day, there’s always more to get next time.
Come and Join us on September 2013 and please pass along word to your friends.
