Volunteers from Samoa Primary School, Peace Chapel Christian School, Leifiifi College, St Marys College and Samoa Touch Rugby braved the heat on Saturday 24th November, to take part in BSP's Annual Go Green Clean Up. Led by BSP staff, the groups were assigned to different parts of the town area including the Mulinuu Peninsula along the seawall, Government offices, the Court house, Malaefatu Park, Flea Market, Vaisigano Bridge, Matafele and Savalalo.
BSP's Go Green campaign aims at creating a culture of environmental responsibility and increasing people's awareness on ways to reduce waste. It is a nationwide initiative promoted by BSP in the markets that it operates in. BSP champions itself in driving Go Green schemes every year as a commitment to a cleaner and healthier environment.
Participation of students from Primary and Secondary schools is significant as this sends out the message that cleaning is everyone's responsibility. BSP's Country Manager, Taituuga Maryann Lameko-Vaai said : "The Go Green message is simple, RETHINK, REUSE AND RECYCLE. Through this initiative, we encourage our people to take care of our environment, keep Samoa clean and rethink if there are things that we can reuse or recycle thus reducing waste. In addition, the Go Green for Christmas message hopes to promote the spirit of cleanliness throughout the festive season. We want to thank all participants and their families for making time to be part of BSP's Go Green campaign and we wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!."
