2nd Da Nang Clean-up

On Saturday 17th September 2016, Evergreen Labs organized and hosted the 2nd Da Nang Clean Up at Man Thai beach area. Together with 430 volunteers from all ages and occupations, we covered an area of about 4 km and collected 275 trash bags with a total of almost 2 tons of trash. Proudly featured as one of hundreds of coastal clean-ups around the globe and the only clean-up in Vietnam on the International Coastal Cleanup Day initiated by Ocean Conservancy – an active international NGO with the vision of a healthy ocean that sustains life on our planet, this is our biggest event so far.

A big thank you goes out to local businesses and supporters who generously sponsored our clean-up event: Da Nang Xanh Travel, Danapha JSC, Fusion Suites Hotel, Waves Rooftop Bar, dananghappenings.com, Danasport JSC, Vietnam Pocket Guide and Clean Up Vietnam.

With the help of our active volunteers, the beach was freed of countless fishing nets, bottles, fluorescent lights, styrofoam, plastic bags, packaging and other items left behind and swept on to the beach. After the cleanup, we had much fun with BBQ, fruits, snacks, drinks and music. More importantly, we got to meet like-minded people who care about the environment and hopefully this spirit will be held up and spread among not only Da Nang citizens but also all over Vietnam for a clean and green planet. We are overwhelmed by the enthusiasm as a lot of participants have come to us and asked to join our next event. We really hope to welcome everyone again for our next event and any initiatives alike.
