To ensure a pristine environment participants came together at 7am to pick up litter, with the hope to encourage local residents to keep the area usually riddled with rubbish clean.

Participant,Vishal Kumar said parents and citizens needed to mold children into becoming environment champions for the betterment of the current and the future generation.

KUMAR: “We need to bring up our children as role models in the community and lead by example, so that we don’t stand back when people are seen littering in public, but speak out on the impacts of such irresponsible actions on the marine life and environment. l would urge all citizens to make small groups and clean one of the littered areas in public or community so that you can make a difference.”

The Suva City Council (SCC) truck assisted the team by fetching bags from the clean-up site and disposing it appropriately.
