Sponsored by Quiksilver & Roxy and organized by Taiwan Adventure Outings in partnership with several international and local enterprises, the event is set to make an even larger positive impact this year.
Our Taiwan National Clean Up event aims to bring environmental awareness to those living in Taiwan, as well as provide fun outdoor activities for families and individuals both young and old.
Every month, for the last two years, TAO, an environmentally conscious adventure company, has been hosting free beach and forest clean up events, with the goal of bringing communities together for environmental conservation, education and engagement.
Let these numbers soak in for a minute:
While it seems normal, the average Taiwan resident consumes an estimate of 800 plastic bags a year.
Globally the equivalent of one garbage truck per minute is being dumped in the oceans.
Taiwan’s unique geographical location means it is prone to waste washing up on its shores.
Taiwan aims to be free of plastic by 2030, and already the Environmental Protection Agency has banned single-use bags in seven industries this year. Local initiatives like the Taiwan National Clean Up are essential to provide awareness and education about everyday plastic consumption to realize these goals.
The public is welcome to join in on any location by contacting TAO at [email protected] or the Facebook event links above.
