Sunday 22nd April saw 'Earth Day' clean-ups take part across the globe. The Red Sea was no exception to this and HEPCA are thrilled to announce that over 30 organisations gathered teams together for local clean-ups.
blue o two organsed their own clean-ups from the Red Sea fleet. Several full bags of debris was collected from the dive sites on 22nd April, with no rubbish found on the pristine dive sites of the south! This may not sound like a lot to be collected, but this is a good thing, with rubbish levels in the more frequently littered northern sites seemingly decreasing in volume!
Nora Ali - chairperson of the board of directors at HEPCA said "I cannot express my gratitude for every single hand that has helped cleaning out precious environment. We saw many participants in the event, who committed themselves and their time for making our surroundings more environmentally friendly."
blue o two would like to thank everyone onboard who took part in the clean-ups on the day!
