Taiwan is the home of beautiful landscapes, lush green forests, thriving wildlife, incredible cities, and some of the most amazing people. However, just like every rose has it’s thorn, some of Taiwan’s most breathtaking locations have become exposed to the biproduct of negligent environmental practices.
Pictured above are fourteen bags of trash weighing well over 100Kg gathered by members of TAO. Surprisingly, the effort took just under three hours time and drastically improved the scenery surrounding the immediate location. However, upon leaving there was still a long stretch of beach tainted with rubbish, discarded clothing, and glass bottles.
The main reason for our beach cleanups is not about how much we can clean, it’s about coming together as a community and inspiring others to work together to make our country a better place. We show people that if they do not dispose of their trash, then other people will take time and effort out of their day to do it for them.
Please remember to do your part whenever you go out to the beach, the mountains, or even around your city. Dispose of trash wisely and use it conservatively. Be responsible. Be adventurous.
