Port Moresby Nature Park today launched for the third consecutive year the BSP Trash to Treasure Sculpture Festival, thanks to naming rights sponsor BSP Financial Group and other valued sponsors and supporters of the Park.
The BSP Trash to Treasure festival emphasises on creating sculptures made of solid waste such as tins, cans, bottles, rubber and plastic collected around the city.
Speaking at today’s launch was BSP Financial Group’s Corporate Sponsorship Manager, Ms Amellia Minnopu, who reiterated BSP Financial Group’s commitment to supporting initiatives that contributed positively towards the conservation of the environment.
“BSP recognises the environmental issues faced in PNG and is committed to assist with initiatives that contribute towards reducing any negative impact and enhance measures taken to conserve the environment we live in,” said Ms Amellia Minnopu, BSP Financial Group’s Corporate Sponsorship Manager.
“We at BSP Financial Group are pleased to reaffirm our support to Port Moresby Nature Park as the only internationally recognised Wildlife Park in the country”, added Ms Minnopu.
Also present at the Launch was Governor for NCD, Hon. Powes Parkop who was delighted to witness yet another event that supported NCDC’s efforts in reducing and recycling waste within the city.
“NCDC Waste Management and the rest of the team at NCDC are focused on Renewing, Reducing and Recycling everyday waste. And it is with such initiatives like the BSP Trash to Treasure Festival that continue to drive this message through to members of the community that not all you think is rubbish must be thrown away. Some can be kept to create useful items either for your home or office”, Governor Parkop said.
On behalf of the Park’s CEO, Port Moresby Nature Park General Manager, David Thompson appreciated all the sponsors of the event, adding that the BSP Trash to Treasure Festival would not have been possible without everyone’s collaborative sponsorship and support.
Mr. Thompson said: “BSP’s sponsorship has given the BSP Trash to Treasure Festival, its unique identity since its inception for which we are truly grateful for and thank BSP Financial Group for continuing this great community event here at the Port Moresby Nature Park.”
“The BSP Trash to Treasure Sculpture Festival is a great opportunity to educate the general public on issues of waste and pollution which is an environmental concern for a big city such as Port Moresby and we at Nature Park wouldn’t continue such advocacy without the support of BSP Financial Group and all other sponsors of the event,” added Mr Thompson.
Apart from the event’s main sponsors BSP Financial Group, Port Moresby Nature Park would like to also thank IHG Group, Trukai Industries, CPL Group, Goodman Fielder International, The National, NCDC, Digicel PNG and Active City Youth Development Program. The larger than life sculptures will be on display at the Port Moresby Nature Park for 5 weekends from 12 June – 11 July for all to see and the Park welcomes everyone to be part of this fantastic event. _____________________________________________
