Cleaning-locations are in the city, parks and sights. The bottom line will be presented as a pressed cube to the press.

Fag ends everywhere – that´s not nice. Zigarettenkippen überall – das ist nicht schön. Sparkasse Berlin will send out volunteers for one day, who will clean the town from this dirt.
