On June 8, 2013, as a part of Global Community Week in Switzerland, volunteers from Zurich Financial Services Group set about the task of cleaning up Lake Zürich. 40 volunteers joined the Swiss Environmental and Waste Divers (SUAT) and worked for 5 hours, covering just a small section of the lake but netting over five tons of trash.
“It’s frustrating. We could dive for another five days and still find litter,” said one of the divers during the event.
Here’s what else the divers found during their clean up efforts:
