Clean Up the World Day

Clean Up the World Day  

September 15 marked the World Clean Up Day. Worldwide,
individuals, NGOs, governments and the private sector took up the task of
cleaning up especially public places. 
In Mauritius, several environmental NGOs took up the challenge
to collect and dispose of rubbish.  Sadly,
people use open spaces as dumping grounds. Beaches are often the target of
irresponsible habits of leaving waste everywhere even if trash can are
available only a few metres away. 
A momentous task awaits those involved in sensitisation
about environmental protection.
