Cleaning the Beaches of Baltim from Plastic
Geocycle Egypt continues its collaboration with Kafr El Sheikh governorate and civil society, to serve the community by cleaning Baltim Beach, with the goal to reduce plastic leakage to the sea, and environmental contamination, contributing to the efforts to mitigate the effects of global warming and reducing the use of imported virgin fossil feedstock in cement manufacturing.
The environmental community service activity is implemented under the auspices of Egyptian Ministries and Kafr El Sheikh Governorate, jointly contributing efforts to serve Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) and achieve Egypt Vision 2030.
Local youth volunteers have remarkably supported their governorate, cleaning up a 3 km² beach, and collecting an average of 80,000 plastic bottles. The clean-up initiative specifically addresses Sustainable Development Goal 13 (SDG 13) pertaining to climate action, which is one of 17 Sustainable Development Goals and 169 SDG indicators.
