Over 150kg of waste collected at beach clean-up

Over 150 kilogrammes of garbage and waste was collected by over 30 participants comprising Shell LiveWIRE Brunei Alumni members at a cleaning campaign at Muara Beach.

The beach clean-up is one of Shell LiveWIRE Brunei’s ‘Adopt-A-Beach’ campaign, a community effort aimed at empowering individuals of all ages to participate in the conservation of the marine environment as well as committing to ensure the cleanliness of Muara Beach for one year through a series of quarterly beach clean-ups.

The event was organised by Shell LiveWIRE Brunei with support from the Department of Environment, Parks and Recreation (JASTRe), Ministry of Development and supported by Beach Bunch Association.

Apart from introducing a sustainable lifestyle and to instil awareness in disposing garbage responsibly, the initiative aims to expose the issue of incorrect waste management and to raise awareness of correct waste management practices.

Shell LiveWIRE Brunei Programme Director Haji Abdul Yusrin bin Dato Seri Laila Jasa Haji Mohd Salleh, officers from Beach Bunch Association and Shell LiveWIRE Brunei also took part in the beach clean-up.
