On May 2nd, 2008 Internet newsfeeds asked: What do Estonian Tech Millionaires do for Fun? The answer was: They find and digitally map 10,000 tons of garbage. Then they get 40,000 of their closest friends to clean it all up in one single day.
On Saturday, May 3rd all of that came into reality - Estonians joined forces in an effort to clean up the 45,227 km² country from illegally dumped or littered waste. 50,000 volunteers, which is about 3.8% of population of Estonia, gave their hands and gathered thousands of tons of garbage.
