On October 10, 2010 (10/10/10) young volunteers will engage in pollution reduction by picking up and cleaning up trash, particularly the Non-biodegradable items (e.g. Plastic). We hope to celebrate this historic day by contributing to the preservation of the natural environment.
The particulars of the event are given below-
- Trash cleanup for 1 hour
– Encouraging the pedestrians to dispose the garbage in proper places
– Disposing the collected trash in the right place thus setting up an example for everyone
– At last, some Local Work Party as a part of the Global Work Party
Global Warming is causing a devastating Climate Change; it is time we take some radical steps to avert the grim fate that has been projected. As one of the most vulnerable countries, Bangladesh can still demonstrate a good example by reducing whatever trivial pollution that it generates. With that in mind, we are going to celebrate 10/10/10.
There are more than 6000 registered events so far and it’s happening worldwide. Together we will send a strong message to the concerned national and international bodies that we are aware and we have started working. Now it is time You Start Working!
LET’S MAKE IT HAPPEN

On October 10, 2010, 350.org is calling on YOU to join your neighbors in an effort to green your community, proving that individuals can do their part to tackle climate change, and send a resounding message to our politicians: “We’re getting to work, what about you?”
10/10/10 is a Global Work Party, and — at the time of writing this — has 6,077 events currently registered in 184 countries. That’s right — people across the world, in all but 8 countries, are coming together to do things like plant trees, install solar panels and work in community gardens.
In Hawaii, university students are hosting a bike ride to the beach, where the group will then spend time cleaning the coastline.
In New York City, volunteers will help to paint roofs of various buildings, like schools, white. The reflective coating will save energy and cut back on emissions.
A group in Scotland has three events planned, including removal of invasive plants and planting of trees and other native species instead. They will also be mobbing a local pub that has pledged 20% of the profits toward making the establishment more energy efficient.
