Aluminum cans, food wrappers, plastic bags, beer bottles, and even disposable masks. These were among the trash collected by 18 volunteers during a two-hour kayaking beach clean-up programme at Marina Reservoir organised by Passion Wave at Marina Bay. "Through regular beach clean-up programmes, we hope to raise awareness of the harmful effects of litter on our marine life and encourage the community to take ownership to create a clean and green environment,” explains Mr Nick Teo, Vice-Chairman of PAssion WaVe Outreach Committee @Central Singapore. 9-year-old young volunteer Alexis Quek beamed with pride with the full bucket of trash that she has collected. “There was litter everywhere, it could be mistaken for food by sea animals and endanger them,” she exclaims. 68-year-old Mr Francis Teo, who volunteered with eight other family members, saw it as a meaningful activity for the family. He shares, “Keeping our environment clean is everyone's responsibility, we only have one Mother Earth!"
