Mission Description

Clean up our beaches and raise awareness on marine debris

Due to the recent COVID-19 spread in Malaysia, we are cancelling all beach clean-ups until further notice. We apologize for any inconvenience caused. However, we may have other volunteer opportunities in the future. Stay safe in these times.

Mission Impact

We want to raise awareness on the impact of waste, especially plastic waste, on the marine environment. During the clean-up, you will need to collect important data on the trash collected. If we have data every week for one year, we can analyse what type of trash found - source from Malaysia or other countries, higher volumes during monsoon, changes in amount of trash, etc. Reliable statistics empower us to lobby for a change in our recycling and waste management habits.

For example, a group collected the following items at Pantai Kelanang in September 2018:
- 332 plastic bottles
- 522 cigarette butts
- 140 plastic bags
