Belgium,Egypt : The EU organises a beach clean-up event in Alexandria.

The European Union (EU) Delegation to Egypt is organising a beach clean-up in Alexandria on 15 September 2018 on the International Coastal Clean-up Day, in collaboration with Alexandria Governorate and Greenish.

The initiative will bring together 300 volunteers from Alexandria aiming to clean-up the 2KM El Saraya Public Beach in El Montaza.

During the event, volunteers and beach visitors will be introduced to the importance of recycling and waste sorting, how to minimize waste of energy and water resources, the risks of plastic to marine life, and how to reduce the use of plastic materials.

Participants will receive giveaways and awards of refillable bottles and reusable bags as substitute to single-use plastic products.

The EU beach clean-up day is accompanied by a social media campaign to raise awareness about the harms of waste to marine life and public health, and alternatives to the single-use plastic products.
