Beach Clean up

mar 16, 2020

On March 7th, DLW in partnership with Instituto Ecológico Aqualung – Tatuí Project, Norwegian-Brazilian Chamber of Commerce and WISTA Brazil promoted a super beach cleaning campaign, held in Praia do Leme in celebration of the International Women’s Day, aiming at the debate and collective awareness on issues about gender equality and sustainability.

Our action was attended by more than 150 volunteers, among those registered on the Atados website, corporate partners and DLW participants. In addition to issues that directly encompassed several United Nations SDGs, such as: # 5 – Gender Equality, # 14 – Life Below Water and # 17 – Partnerships For The Goals.

Our efforts resulted in 120 kg of waste removed, including micro waste, from the beach in just 2 hours of mobilization!

It was a great weekend schedule on a Saturday morning, not only to leave the beach clean, but also to bring together families and friends who set out to learn, teach and act on behalf of Mother Nature and show that the transformation is collective.

We would like to thank all those who believe and continue to believe in our work and mission, especially the sponsors for this event who supported us in enabling another beach cleaning and voluntary work with purpose. Thank you very much: Rystad Energy, Wilhelmsen group and Mattos Filho.
