Three beautiful white sandy beaches. Clear turquoise water. Gorgeous weather. We couldn’t have had a more perfect day for the Ceres Beach Clean Up at Port Launay in Port Glaud!
This time, we were joined by children from the President’s Village. The 13 kids aged between 10 and 14 were enthusiastic participants, eager to learn about the importance of protecting our planet.
Hosted by APEX, the clean-up on 11 November 2023 brought together community volunteers including children, a team from the Constance Ephelia Resort, and members of the Seychelles Belgian Association.We were a 50-strong group!
APEX General Manager, Eric Crutzen and Constance Ephelia Resort Hotel Manager, Mr Hiru Daryanani, welcomed our volunteers before splitting them into two groups. All the children headed off to clean Anse I’islette along with some adults, while the rest of the group hiked for seven minutes to Lans Trusalo.
The secluded beach at Lans Trusalo was quite clean but volunteers searching low-lying vegetation found debris washed up by the high tide. Many couldn’t resist spending time on the spectacular rocky shore that separates Lans Trusalo from Lans Angle. For most participants, this was their first time on these two stunning beaches!
The type of rubbish collected at Port Glaud differed from the garbage hauled during the two previous Ceres Beach Clean Ups. In this case, it was clear that most of the rubbish from Beau-Vallon and Anse Royale beaches were generated by picnickers.
Overall, everyone had great fun while helping protect our stunning piece of the planet. “The kids really enjoyed the clean-up as they were really looking forward to it,” explained Sir Daniel Commettant from the President’s Village. “They really enjoy these kinds of engaging activities. Thank you, APEX, for inviting us”.
Afterwards, APEX donated several food items to the President’s Village, including Ceres juices, chips and biscuits.
Our next Ceres Beach Clean Up is at Port Glaud on Saturday, 11 November at 9am. Please join us. Click here to register.
