Estonia has pioneered the model of mobilising large numbers of people for one-day nation-wide cleanups to clean up illegal waste. The first such cleanup took place on 4 May 2008 with the Estonian nation-wide cleanup called Let's do it! (in Estonian: "Teeme Ära!") engaging 50000 people or 4% of their population, cleaning up 10000 tons of waste in one day.[3]
