Recently the team at Elewana Kilindi Zanzibar come together from various departments to support the Elewana commitment to a greener environment.  Everyone arrived at the beach house to commence the beach activity, a huge team effort to reduce waste in the oceans by cleaning the beaches on a regular basis.

Prayers were said followed by the beach attendant Haji briefing the team on what his duties entail on a day to day basis with respect to taking care of the beach environment and guaranteeing each guest has an enjoyable beach experience.

Team leader Andrew shared some do’s & don’ts that included things such as not to pick up any sea shells, sea weed or drift wood. The area the team covered in their clean-up was from below Villa 9 all the way to the far end of the beach.

Recyclable bags were used to collect the trash, which mainly consisted of plastic bottles, plastic bags and pieces of flip flops – all the items that cause such damage to the many inhabitants of our oceans, then finally ending up on our beaches harming even more wildlife.  It is a global issue that needs to be tackled by both corporates and individuals alike if we, as a generation, are going to have any impact in reducing waste not only in the oceans but on the planet as a whole.

At the end of the activity, there were eight large bags of refuse collected – a fantastic achievement by the team. Elewana Collection will continue to be proactive on environmental issues and strive for a better tomorrow for the next generation.
