International Coastal Clean Up is globally celebrated every year. The Body Shop Malaysia has been organizing its’ annual Beach Clean Up in conjunction with International Coastal Clean Up for the past 25 years. Volunteers assist to collect trash and data about the type of trash found on local coastal areas which is then sent to Ocean Conservancy as part of their global data collection. This event acts as a platform to raise awareness about the rise of ocean pollution. It is not just about cleaning the area but to educate people on the importance of keeping our waters clean and safe for marine life.
This year, The Body Shop Malaysia held their annual Beach Clean Up event at Pantai Redang, Sekinchan, Selangor on 29 September 2019. We received close to 200 volunteers and collected 583.2 kilograms of trash in total. Thank you everybody who helped out!
