There is a wise saying that “cleanliness is next to Godliness”, but in the case where everywhere is filthy, what then do we say? A clean environment is essential for human health and well-being. We need a clean environment so we can live healthy lives and leave future generations a healthy Earth.
There have been changes in the environment in every time period but the biggest and most negative changes are happening today which take drastic toll on the planet.
A lot of groups and people are doing everything they can to raise awareness about the importance of a clean environment and to make the environment healthier. Unfortunately, it is still not enough. The only way we are going to achieve a clean environment is if everyone works together to take care of our planet.
#AgbojuCleanup was borne out of the need to educate people on the benefits of regular cleaning of the environment and proper waste disposal. It is an environmental community service organised by Salpha Energy, with the support of Susty Vibes, ReesAfrica and Let’s Do It Nigeria – organisations that champion sustainability and sustainable practices.
Agboju Cleanup held on Saturday, 25th November, 2017 at 7:00am; was themed “…clean energy for a cleaner environment” and had about 30 participants (volunteers included). All parties got together at the market, geared up in their hand gloves and nose guards, equipped with their brooms and rakes; and commenced cleaning.
It was a fun filled event as each person had the opportunity to network and connect with other like-minded persons.
We met with the executives of Agboju Market.
