Published on 2018-06-27

Last Friday, 26 Chamber members volunteered their time to a great cause - HandsOn Shanghai’s Nanhui Beach Clean-up Event.

Although Friday’s rainy weather seemed to not be perfect for outdoor activities, nothing could put a damper on the morale. Volunteers were very engaged and worked hard on the front lines in an effort to tackle the problem of plastic waste. Through team collaboration, a grand total of 123.4kg of ocean waste was collected and properly disposed of! 

As part of the Chamber's support for HandsOn Shanghai, we will arrange more Beach Clean-up events for members in the second half of this year, starting in September. We look forward to having more members participate in this environmentally-friendly cause!
