Go Green 2016

This marked the 2016 BSP Go Green Annual Clean-up Day. The theme for Go Green was 'Rethink, Reuse, Recycle'.

 

The event was coordinated through BSP branches around the Pacific with the aim to teach, promote and action. BSP looks forward to more school participating in this event next year.

 

BSP ECO Ambassador, Mr. John Karie said, "The Go Green message for 2016 is simple; it's "Rethink, Reuse, Recycle" and it should encourage all our young generation to care about our environment and keep our cities, towns and neighbourhoods clean"

 

"Be Responsible and think about where your litter ends up. By taking part in this event, we are all Go Green ambassadors and it is our responsibility to remind and encourage our friends and family to respect and care for environment," BSP ECO Ambassador, Mr. John Karie added.

 

For 2016, BSP Fiji completed their clean-up event in September while BSP Tonga conducted theirs on Thursday 10th November and Samoa on Friday 11th November respectively.

 

PNG, Solomon Islands, Vanuatu and Cook Islands will host their clean-up event on Friday 18th November.

 

"We thank the communities and the following school students from Central School, Port Vila International School, Seaside Community School, Pikinini Playtime, Kawenu School, Freshwater School for participating the 2016 Go Green Annual School Clean-up day, " Ms Moana Korikalo, Head of Retail & Marketing.

 

BSP is proud to be a part of the community and will continue to promote the Go Green message to encourage communities and children to respect and keep our streets litter free. The reward for everyone will be a cleaner community and students will learn to be more responsible in caring for the environment.
