Kleen-Pak International Coastal Cleanup, Singapore 2018 @ Changi Beach
1/10/18, 3:00 am
At Kleen-Pak, we have always believed in giving back to the community and this has in turn become an integral part of our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) efforts. With that in mind, over 40 Kleen-Pak's staff got together to participate in the 27th International Coastal Cleanup, Singapore (ICCS) which was held on the 15th of September 2018.
The International Coastal Cleanup (ICC) is an annual event conducted in 70-100 countries, coordinated by the US-based agency, The Ocean Conservancy, a non-profit organisation. With Singapore being one of the countries involved in this event, numerous local and international schools, institutions and government bodies, private organisations and corporate entities participate annually to do a part for the environment.
The programme aims to remove and collect data on the debris from the shorelines, waterways and beaches of the world's lakes, rivers and oceans. This information is crucial for raising awareness as well as to educate the public on marine debris issues. On top of that, these data are submitted to governmental and international organisations in hopes of encouraging positive changes that will eventually reduce the debris in waterways and enhance aquatic environments.
The volunteers of Kleen-Pak battled the early morning sun and headed down to Changi Beach with enthusiasm to begin the event. Everyone did their very best in cleaning up the beach as well as to accurately record down the data. At the end of the day, everyone left with smiles on their faces knowing that they have all done their part for the environment.
