Kids remove 150kg of Waste From Chamonix Ski Area
A group of school children from the local primary school at the village of Les Houches have been out on the ski slopes collecting rubbish. The children and their adult helpers collected around 150kg of waste. The action was combined with a larger effort that saw 650 people collect 367kg of waste from the slopes at Chamrousse.
Each year when the snow begins thawing teams of volunteers hit the slopes around the world to collect rubbish from the season before. Many of the litter-collections are organised in France by the long-established environmental group Mountain-riders.
a spokesperson for the local municipality said “We want to thank all those little hands that take care of tomorrow.”
