Event story

The first Clean of the SCUBA #picuptrip went really well with 23 volunteers getting stuck in and helping to clean not only around Ben Than Market, one of the busiest tourist markets in Saigon but a local park nearby!

Their resilience to the massive heat of the sun and their dedication to grabbing plastic from dirty sewers was testament of their passion to protect our oceans!

A special Thanks to Green and Book Ambassadors (Everyday clean up challenge) who are wonderful stewards of our environment with their creative campaigns and BVIS (British Vietnamese International School) who brought litters pickers, hessian sacks and a whole lot of fun!

In just one hour we filled 8 bags (full to the brim!) of plastic pollution and by far the top offender was straws at a whopping 569 collected!

Thanks again to all that came and we hope to see more people on the next clean!

Good job to all the Trashpackers our there - keep up the good work!!
