Annoyed Dutch guy


Tommy Kleyn rides his bike every day to work. A beautiful ride by the water, but Tommy got annoyed every time he rode by one stretch of the river which was covered with plastic bottles and other garbage. He decided to take action and vowed to fill one big garbage bag with trash every time he passed the spot.

He shared his action on Facebook and soon his friends started helping him out. After 22 bags full of trash, the stretch that was once covered with plastic is now clean. According to Tommy it gives him a great feeling every day. An awesome example of a small act making a big impact, especially since people around the world started following his example.
