Eneco Clean Beach Cup
by Eneco Clean Beach Life (Civil society organization)
The Eneco Clean Beach Cup is Belgiums answer to raise awareness for the plastic problem in our oceans. All Belgian Surfclubs take the lead and invite as much people as possible to help clean the beaches on the first Sunday of spring. The surfclub/coastal town that can mobilize the most volunteers wins the cup! In 2017 over 2500 volunteers helped us out.
