ECCT participates in International Beach Cleaning Day
ECCT members and staff took part in international beach cleaning day together with the Taipei European School and numerous other local organizations.
International beach cleaning day (or Coastal Cleanup day) has become the world's largest volunteer effort for ocean health. Millions of volunteers in over 150 countries and locations take part in the event annually to remove tonnes of rubbish from the shores of lakes, streams, rivers and the ocean on just one day each year.
ECCT staff and members including large groups from the Swire Group, Shangri-la Far Eastern Plaza Hotel, TUV Rheinland and Santa Fe joined forces with around 60 students from TES to clean up a large section of the Linshanbi beach reaction area.
Each participant filled at least one large bag of rubbish. Thanks to their joint efforts, the beach was left in a spotless condition for local residents and tourists to enjoy.
