Gloria Garcia Fernandez , Molenbeek council member of cleanliness, dressed up for Halloween and a trip on the canal. Together with her colleagues she fished lots of trash out of the water and she could observe with her own eyes that half of the trash were cans and plastic bottles. Molenbeek is currently going through the process of maybe joining the Statiegeldalliantie , asking for the introduction of the deposit system in Belgium. The time has never been more urgent than today. So Molenbeek, go for it!
At the same time two journalists of Le Soir got their pants wet to write a story about Canal It Up and our activity of fishing for plastic in their Planet column.
