Waste Free Environment Day at Sunset Beach

DUBAI, 25th January, 2016 (WAM) — Hosted by the Gulf Petrochemicals and Chemicals Association, GPCA, and in its 4th edition this year, Waste Free Environment, WFE, is a regional environmental campaign that brings communities together to clean up public spaces. Since its launch in 2013, the campaign has gathered volunteers from the petrochemical companies, school children and university students, collecting 52 tons of waste which was sent for recycling all across the Arabian Gulf.

This year’s campaign will hit Sunset Beach in Dubai on 11th February where schools and volunteers will come together for a fun-filled day encapsulating education, games and food by the sea. The campaign layout will resemble an educational playground with circuit style stations with an agenda featuring competitions, games, quizzes and a magic show, in addition to the clean-up.

For the first time ever, WFE will be hosting a regional and local drawing competition where participants get to show off their drawing skills using the official campaign hashtag: #wfecampaign. Students with the best pieces will win a prize.

The Dubai event is held under the support of the UAE Ministry of Water and Environment, the Dubai Municipality, Suez Environment (formerly Trascho-Sita) and Shell Chemicals.
