1,000 Volunteers Clean Up Water Areas in the Middle East in Celebration of World Oceans Day

 

Nearly 1,000 Nestlé volunteers teamed up with local authorities and NGOs in the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, and in North African countries to raise awareness and inspire responsible disposal of waste by cleaning up beaches and other water areas. More than 25 tons of waste were collected, for sorting and recycling through local partners. The activities, held on World Oceans Day which is celebrated every June 8th since 1992, were part of a global Nestlé employee volunteering initiative in more than 45 countries.
