World Cleanup Day (16 Sep) is an annual global social action program aimed at combating the global mismanaged waste crisis, including the problem of marine debris. In conjunction with this global event, CSC organized a beach and sea clean-up on Sunday, 17 September 2023, mobilizing members, youth sailors and guests in efforts to create a cleaner planet.
The outcome: a total of over 115kg of waste was collected along our immediate shoreline, in addition to 52kg of waste retrieved from the East Johor Straits.
The above feat was accomplished in a span of under 5 hours! Big thank you to the following groups of people for volunteering their time and effort for a good cause:
- Olive Oyl
- CSC Youth Sailors
- CSC Members
Not forgetting the support from Georges – thank you for hydrating and refueling our environmental heroes for the day!
Thank you everyone for participating, we look forward to organizing more of such meaningful events in the near future.
