Blood Red supports coast clean up at Balesin Island Club for the fourth time in this annual activity, September 16, 2017. This movement aims to have waste-free seas and promote the importance of preserving our coastal areas.
The Balesin Coastal Clean-up had 268 participants composed of Balesin members, employees as well as students from a local school. The activity started with an orientation on the importance of maintaining cleanliness and the proper disposal of garbage. The participants were grouped and assigned to different locations. Each group was given sheets to tally the garbage they’ve collected such as plastic bottles, fishing tools, papers, glass and more.
The clean-up started at 2:00 PM and lasted for 4 hours. Although not a competition, the organisers awarded the Facilities & Maintenance team of the Balesin Island Club for collecting 368 kilos of trash. At the end of the day, the event was able to accumulate more or less a ton of waste from all the participants.
