BSP Staff in Samoa joined in the National Clean Up day today. This was an initiative by the Ministry of Natural Resources & Environment in partnership with the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Program (SPREP), Ministry of Women Community and Social Development (MWCSD), Samoa Tourism Authority (STA), and the Office of the Pacific Games. BSP supports this initiative by organising this event, and providing gloves and bags and merchandise.
Littering is a great concern and BSP has taken it upon itself to help our government by keeping the environment clean, green and healthy in preparation for our Pacific Games 2019.
BSP Samoa team were divided into three groups to clean up the water front. The clean-up activity for the first group started from Sheraton along the seawall, the second group started from the fire brigade along beach road, and the third group started from the BSP Main branch towards the Town Clock and behind the government buildings and all finished behind the STA fale. The activities started in each group's location from 7.00am till 8.00a.m.
Mrs Lameko-Vaai was surprised by the support from Sir Kostas Constantinou, OBE Chairman, who also joined the clean-up, its staff and their families as well as some tourists who participated.
Sir Kostas Constantinou thanked the staff who participated and said the onus is now on everyone to continue to be Go Green ambassadors and maintain the effort within their households, within their communities, so together everyone can make a difference.
BSP is proud to be a part of the community and will continue to promote the Greening message to encourage communities to respect and keep our streets litter free. The reward for everyone will be a cleaner community and we will learn to be more responsible in caring for the environment.
The National Clean up initiated by MNRE was an opportunity for BSP Samoa to show its support in keeping our environment litter free, clean, green and healthy.
