"We are thrilled to see such vibrant attention to Digital Cleanup Day, that celebrated the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day" said Heidi Solba, President and Head of Network of Let's Do It World. "The network's teams that decided to participate on such a last minute online campaign demonstrated great flexibility and enthusiasm. They translated materials, set up websites, activated their press contacts and showed an amazing enthusiasm in promoting this very necessary knowledge, and all that in only a couple of days," described Solba. "Our aim was to spread awareness of the invisible waste surrounding us and to start discussion on digital waste".
