The Clean Up the World campaign, just like every year since it was launched in 1993, saw millions of people around the world come together to show their commitment to the environment by cleaning up their community. Komandoo is known for its pristine surroundings and sustainability efforts and we were proud to join this global campaign.
While Komandoo’s Green Club regularly organises events aimed at improving our natural and social environment – including monthly beach and reef clean-ups – the annual Clean Up the World event is one that brings together eco-conscious Champions and guests in the largest numbers. While our colleagues from Prodivers snorkelled with guests to clean up areas of the lagoon and reef, the Champions took ownership of the beach clean-up, collecting any debris carried by the ocean currents; close to 20 kg of plastic, metal, rubber and some organic waste was collected. It’s vital for the marine life that we continuously remove anything that doesn’t belong in the natural environment and at Komandoo every day is Clean-Up Day!
When one thinks of what a tiny island like Komandoo has achieved, the positive impact on the environment of all the millions of people taking part across the globe is astounding, so be sure to follow the lead at home and do everything that is in your power to protect what you love!
