Agility employees and their families in Hong Kong participated in Ecovision Asia’s International Coastal Cleanup Challenge on October 17, 2009. The International Coastal Cleanup Challenge is organized at thousands of sites around the world to raise awareness of marine pollution and ocean conservancy.
The Agility team collected and removed about 280kg of trash and debris from the beach next to Nim Wan Path, Hong Kong. By keeping track of the trash collected, participants helped produce data for the Marine Debris Index, “the world’s only annual country-by country, state-by-state index of the problem of marine debris,” according to Ocean Conservancy.
For their efforts in the Coastal Cleanup Challenge, the Agility team was recognized by Ecovision Asia with a Best Team Spirit Award.
