「台灣戶外探險」（Taiwan Adventure Outings）團隊將於5月25日舉辦第三屆「全國淨灘日」，大規模清理全台20個海灘和森林，計畫清出超過一萬公斤的垃圾。
TAIPEI (The China Post) – The 3rd annual Taiwan National Clean Up day will unfold on May 25 at 20 locations in Taiwan, ranging from coastlines to forests, in an effort to clean 10,000 kg worth of garbage, said Taiwan Adventure Outings.
去年活動總共召集了600名志工，清出全台14個地點共四萬噸的垃圾。今年Taiwan Adventure Outings團隊開始向公司行號和組織募款，並成功召集2000名志工一同投入環保工作。
In 2018, Taiwan National Clean Up day and the 600+ volunteers cleaned up to 4 tons of garbage across 14 locations from Taiwan’s forests and beaches. According to the organizer, the goals have been elevated this year: the 2,000 volunteers aim to collect more than 10,000 kg of trash at 20 locations.
According to experts, there is an estimated 5 trillion pieces of plastic in the ocean. Plastic could outweigh marine life by 2050. The largest contributors in Taiwan are Taiwan’s neighboring countries and the local fishing industry with 91 percent of trash on Taiwan shores made of plastic or mixed plastic.
This is an opportunity for corporations, organizations, and local communities to work together to keep Taiwan clean, and learn about ways to reduce your plastic consumption as a company and person, the organizer said.
此次淨灘活動是由Taiwan Adventure Outings和束帶製造公司Wraptie共同舉辦，並由Roxy、Quiksilver和Titoma Design等公司贊助。詳細活動地點請至Taiwan Adventure Outings臉書專頁或官網並進行報名。
