Clean Up the World takes place annually during the third weekend of September, it was established in 1993 and is one of the largest community-based environmental programs in the world with more than 130 countries taking part. The shared vision is to inspire the citizens of planet Earth to tread lightly, clean up and conserve the planet with a global effort to combat waste and plastic pollution.
Kuredu’s clean up event was a little different this year, the global pandemic meant that its beloved guests have not yet arrived. However, they commenced the cleaning program as sustainability is one of the resort’s values.
The resort team joined forces with Prodivers and cleaned up the beaches, house reef, and extensive areas of vegetation around the island. Together, the 60 team members collected 60 bags with around 150 kg of rubbish, consisting mainly of plastic bottles, fishing lines and small bits and pieces. Debris drifted around its oceans with the currents and it’s thanks to the continuing dedication of the team that guests can enjoy a picture-postcard holiday experience every time they visit. Clean-up is for the whole year, not just on this special day which serves to promote the cause.
“Thank you to the whole team, it just goes to show that individual actions really do make a big difference. We look forward to being able share our beautiful island with you, our guests, very soon and also being able to celebrate this special day with you in a more ‘normal’ way next year!”
