80 colleagues of Continental Singapore gathered at Tanah Merah Beach on 15 September to participate in a Coastal Cleanup. Our event was organized in conjunction with the Annual International Coastal Cleanup, coordinated by The Ocean Conservancy organization. This is the second year Continental Singapore is participating in this event. Many of our colleagues are also participating for the second time. Some colleagues were also accompanied by their children. It is never too early to educate our next generation the importance of protecting the Earth!
Our team spent the whole morning collecting data and removed 137kg of debris from our shorelines and beaches. The data collected around the world also serves to educate the public on marine debris issues and to encourage positive change by submissions to governmental and international organizations that will reduce debris in waterways and enhance aquatic environments.
At Continental, we care for the environment!
