Founders of the initiative #niesomprasa (I'm Not a Pig) cleaned a route leading to Zelené Pleso (Green Glacier Lake) in the High Tatras, possible to discover with our Tatras travel guide.
Among the trash they mostly found plastic bottles and paper tissues, as well as an iron bar.
“We found various pieces trash but mostly paper tissues,” said Michaela Grendelová of the initiative, as quoted by the TASR newswire. “People think that they decompose fast, but that is not true, it takes almost a year,” she said.
The #niesomprasa campaign was launched in the summer months when Slovaks were spending more time on holiday in Slovakia, Grendelová said.
