It's no secret that Shetland is one of the most beautiful places in The World (definitely in Europe according to the Lonely Planet anyway) on its day, but to really maintain that it needs to be looked after. We have incredible beaches and shorelines and archaelogy sites enriched in story and history, we have to treasure the beauty and for the most part Shetlanders do!
It's also not any theory of fiction about climate change and it's something that is at the forefront of everyone across the World's minds, and that isn't something that's stopped in Shetland. Especially when you take into consideration Sullom Voe Terminal and the Shetland Gas Plant, on top of this there's the fishing industry that are aware of their waste at Sea. Everyone must take steps to eliminate any issues they can.
Each year, Shetland Amenity Trust's 'Dunna Chuck Bruck' initiative organises and runs the hugely successful Da Voar Redd Up each year. In 2019 alone, there was an estimate 4,500 volunteers. This is a fifth of Shetland's population who have all come together in one weekend to clean up waste left on beaches and shores! This shows the care we take.
