KUCHING, March 23: Some 30 Sarawak Energy staff joined forces with more than 100 volunteers to clean up Abang Amin Beach in Sematan recently.
The volunteers were members of the Wildlife Conservation Society, Kuching Beach Cleaners, Sarawak Eco-Warriors, students from local universities and nearby communities.
A total of 595 kg of rubbish, mainly single-use plastics and non-biodegradable materials, were collected.
Sarawak Energy’s team was led by general manager Robin Tigai and senior manager for Environment Mahmood Long.
The programme was initiated by Sarawak Energy’s Environmental Division of the Health Safety, Security and Environment to promote environmental awareness among the participants and for them to experience the impact of improper waste disposal.
Sarawak Energy hopes to organise similar activities in other beaches in Sarawak. — DayakDaily
