KEEPING SAMOA CLEAN: Students from Faleata College participated in the B.S.P Go Green clean up last year.

BSP Samoa will launch its annual GO GREEN Clean up day this Friday, 11th November.

Over seven schools and one private organisation have registered to take part.

The school clean-up will kick off at 9.00am with school students and other participants taking the lead, picking up rubbish and cleaning up their communities. 

They will be joined by B.S.P staff who will provide Go Green t-shirts, caps, gloves, bags and morning tea for the participants.

This event will be carried out on the 18th November across BSP branches in Papua New Guinea, Cook Islands, Tonga, Solomon Islands and Vanuatu.

Littering is a great concern and B.S.P. has taken it upon itself to teach children the value of keeping the environment clean, green and healthy through its Annual Go Green School Clean-up Day.

Our Go Green Message is simple: ‘Recycle, Reuse, Rethink’

Recycle: Collect and deposit discarded items at an operation, where these materials can be recycled into new products e.g. scrap metal/plastic buyers.

Reuse: Remove wastes or ‘patch up’ damaged areas on an item or its components, to use again for the same purpose.

Rethink: Dispose your unwanted items properly - tied up in bags & put in a rubbish bin.

The clean-up activities involve hundreds of school children and concerned members of the community. BSP has an on-going Go Green calendar, which includes supporting schools and community groups in clean-up activities and also hosting a World Environment Day Expo in P.N.G. 

B.S.P Samoa General Manager Taituuga Maryann Lameko-Vaai said, “I’m very excited to launch Go Green in Samoa this year. And to have 7 schools and one other organisation participating this second time round is great news for us. Again this is a testament to BSP’s commitment to the Samoan community, to help keep Samoa clean for all.”

B.S.P is proud to play a major part within the community and will continue to promote the Go Green message to encourage all especially 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. We must and should always respect our environment.
