How we ACT

PATRON Cleanup days

A JOINT JOURNEY

...towards #plasticfreepeaks.
What began in 2019 with a community clean-up event in our home region, the Allgäu, has now become a cross-border movement in the Alpine region and beyond. In 2022, 8,000 participants have already registered for the CleanUP events. In 2023, this number more than doubled: 19,825 PATRONs were out and about doing something good for nature. We reveal where we cleaned up in our annual review

What's coming next?

It has never been so easy to do good.

PATRON CLEANUP TOUR 2024

This year, we are planning nine major events in the Alpine region and would be delighted if you could join us in making a contribution to a litter-free environment. Grab your outdoor buddies, pick up a reusable CleanUP kit at the local distribution points & off you go! You can find out more and register at the respective tour stop. Will we manage to break the 20,000 mark this year? Join the #plasticfreepeaks movement, become a PATRON and follow the impact we achieve together this year via the live ticker.

WORKING COOPERATIVELY

With the 'Allgäu CleanUP Days', we motivate sportspeople, nature lovers, those seeking relaxation, locals and guests to get out and give something back to Mother Nature. With its 'Clean Allgäu' campaign, the Zweckverband Abfallwirtschaft Kempten (ZAK) is calling on schoolchildren in particular to get active. The 'Clean Allgäu Challenge' is organised by Bosch BKK and DMG Mori and is primarily aimed at schools and companies in the Allgäu region. We are happy to support both campaigns and provide the CleanUP Map for them. 

An overview of all Allgäu CleanUP campaigns. 

ZAK CAMPAIGN CLEAN ALLGÄU

The Zweckverband für Abfallwirtschaft Kempten (ZAK) has been organising the 'SAUBERES ALLGÄU' campaign with schools in the Allgäu region every spring since 2000. Between the Easter and Whitsun holidays, around 5,000 schoolchildren set out to clear their surroundings of rubbish. This year is no exception: the campaign kicks off on 28 March 2024.

CHALLENGE WASTE-FREE ALLGÄU

In the Waste-Free Allgäu Challenge, the Oberallgäu and the Ostallgäu challenge each other to remove as much rubbish left behind from nature as possible. Despite the challenge idea, the overriding goal is pursued equally - to give something back to our nature.
Challenge accepted. Find out how you can take part in the challenge with your class, the whole school or the company you work for.

The journey to #plasticfreepeaks starts with you! Whether you're a local or a guest, from any generation - anyone who wants to do something good for nature can take part.

Taking part for the first time? Under the following link we explain 'How to CleanUP': how you can register and where you can get your CleanUP kit. 

How to CleanUP

DID YOU KNOW?

Collecting rubbish makes happy! As a participant in CleanUP Days, you will be outdoors in the fresh air and doing good together with hundreds of other volunteers. It has been scientifically proven that spending time in nature as well as altruistic, community-based activities release endorphins. You can find the proof in the form of many happy faces in the PATRON CleanUP gallery.

“IT IS OUR NATURE.”  

Why we do what we do.

The aim of the CleanUP Days is easy to explain: in joint, recurring events, we free nature from rubbish that has been left lying around. We no longer stand idly by and watch, but give something back to nature. In this way, we contribute to an intrinsic change in awareness that our world urgently needs. Step by step and hand in hand closer to our vision of #plasticfreepeaks.
