This year’s Clean Up the World weekend kicked off on Friday, September 16.

Before the activity took place, the general manager of the Berjaya Beau Vallon Bay Resort & Casino, Ken Choo, sponsored each of the participants a clean-up campaign t-shirt to wear for the occasion.

At around 9.30am, students, teachers and staff from the hotel armed in gloves and carrying bin liners, started cleaning a large part of the beach, picking up plastic bottles, glass bottles and plastic bags left behind by picnickers.

“We feel that smaller bins are needed along the beach and more education needs to be done regarding the dangers of litter of the coastal environment,” said Lindy Adela, a general assistant from the Beau Vallon primary school.
She added that the activity highlighted how local action, taken by every one of our communities and volunteers, has a global impact. 

“All of us should take responsibility for the wellbeing of our environment at a personal and community level and in so doing, contribute to the global effort,” she said.

Clean Up the World is a community-based environmental campaign that inspires and empowers individuals and communities from every corner of the globe to make their environment a cleaner, healthier place to live.

The campaign brings together businesses, community groups, schools, governments and individuals who carry out a range of activities and programmes that positively improve local environments through cleaning up and conservation.
