Beach Clean-Up

To protect our marine environment, staff members of Bank South Pacific and the United States Embassy organised a cleanup drive on the beach this week.

BSP and US Embassy staff members gathered along at the popular My Suva Picnic Park to clean its foreshore.

BSP country manager Kevin McCarthy said: “If you start doing this it will make a big difference. It’s good that kids are telling their parents not to throw rubbish out of their vehicles,” he said.

Mr McCarthy said the penalties were not enough because people continue to throw rubbish and believes it was not being  enforced.

“This is the fourth time we have organised the cleanup with the US Embassy,” he said.

Beach Clean-Up at the Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series Chicago

At each Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series, Land Rover BAR and 11th Hour Racing collaborate on organizing a community outreach/engagement event.

The day before racing began in Chicago we teamed up with Land Rover BAR and Shedd Aquarium for World Oceans Day and Great Lakes Action Day. We led a beach clean-up on the shore of Lake Michigan with 27 students from Walt Disney Elementary School.

During the clean-up, the students learned about the impact of invasive species, plastics pollution, and how collecting data can help protect the coastlines. Participating in events like this encourages the next generation to care for the wild places they live near and play in. The students collected 18.95 lbs. of trash and 18.48 lbs. of recycling, totaling 37.43 lbs. of marine debris that will no longer be in our waterways.
