Come join us this Saturday, November 4, between 10am and 12pm on the Family Beach after Le Meridien Al Aqah Beach Resort in Fujairah! We will demo the beach cleaning performance of our Cherrington 5500 machine. Taking you through the process step-by-step, our experts will share tips, tricks and tools of the trade. 

A large number of Ecocoast employees will be there to participate in Clean Up Arabia, an annual voluntary campaign that aims to clear beaches and key dive sites from harmful marine debris. The campaign also aims to raise public awareness about the negative impact that marine debris has on our health and that of our wildlife.

Clean Up Arabia is organized by Emirates Diving Association (EDA), and backed by the Australian’s ‘Clean Up the World’ campaign, the US-based ‘International Coastal Cleanup’ and the Project AWARE Foundation. All these organisers have years of experience around the world, coordinating groups from all walks of life, joining together for the good of the earth.

We also participated in the event last year. All volunteers were able to remove over 10,400 pieces of trash from beach areas and dive sites in just 3 hours. Around 2,990 cigarette butts, 657 plastic bottle caps, 402 beverage cans, 393 straws and 382 plastic beverage bottles – the most likely to find items.
