The Palma Core Foundation Team participated in the 14th cycle of the annual ‘Clean Up UAE’ campaign organised by the Emirates Environmental Group (EEG) on Dec 5, 2015.
Equipped with biodegradable waste bags, the Palma Core Foundation Team were part of the 2,775 participants involved in picking up waste on the first day of the campaign at the Nad Al Sheba area of Dubai. The combined effort of the participants resulted in the collection of 21 tonnes of waste, in the biggest environmental campaign in the UAE.
The ‘Clean Up UAE’ Campaign aims to create awareness about local environmental issues with special emphasis on waste management, waste reduction and recycling. The ten-day long campaign took place in all the Emirates and major cities of the UAE. The official tag line for this year’s campaign was ‘Exploiting Nature, Exploiting their Future – Get up and Clean-Up!’
