In 2017, Gergely Hankó, volunteer of the Plastic CUP initiative discovered a floodplain forest heavily polluted with plastic. He called the Plastic Pirates, who joined their forces with nature conservationists and the water management authorities. Together, they launched a massive cleanup project to restore the habitat. This is the story of a massive effort that lasted 3 years.
