Thousands of students across the Pacific will participate in the 2016 BSP Go Green Annual Clean-up this Friday 18th November, 2016.
The event is primarily focused on education and action. “We teach children to be responsible and we lead them on a clean-up of their schools and community,” said BSP’s Corporate Sponsorship Manager Rosemary Mawe.
The BSP Go Green 2016 theme is ‘Recycle, Reuse, Respect’.
For 2016, BSP Fiji has completed their clean-up event in September while BSP Tonga conducted theirs on Thursday 10th November and Samoa on Friday 11th November respectively. PNG, Solomon Islands, Vanuatu and Cook Islands will host their clean-up event on Friday 18th November.
“BSP is proud to be a part of the community and will continue to promote the Go Green message to encourage communities and children to respect and keep our streets litter free.”
“The reward for everyone will be a cleaner community and students will learn to be more responsible in caring for the environment,” said Ms Mawe.
This annual event started in 2010 throughout PNG, Fiji and the Solomon Islands, with Cook Islands, Samoa and Tonga joining in 2015. Vanuatu will join BSP Pacific for the first time this year for the Go Green clean-up event.
BSP has an on-going Go Green calendar, which includes supporting schools and community groups in clean-up activities and the bank provides bags, gloves and merchandise to support the event.
