This Saturday, the Municipality of Pučišća joined the international action “World Cleanup Day”, which has been held in Croatia since 2012. Although postponed for a week due to a bad weather forecast, the action was a great success and managed to gather over 70 volunteers!
Precisely because of the great response, especially from children, students of the Elementary School Pučišća, the action spread to the whole village.
So in addition to cleaning the natural beaches on the stretch from the Lighthouse Sv. Nikola towards the border with the Municipality of Postira, as it was originally conceived, volunteers also cleaned the beaches, promenades, parks, streets of Pučišća, as well.
All collected waste was disposed of in a waste container and will be properly disposed of by the waste collecting company.
The municipality of Pučišća provided all volunteers with gloves, garbage bags, water and lunch after the action, and great help in the action was provided by Pučišća firefighters. This is a great overture for the celebration of the upcoming day of the Municipality of Pučišća and the feast of St. Jere to be celebrated on Thursday, September 30th.
