World Environment Day

World Environment Day

22nd May 2014
World Environment Day is Thursday 5 June 2014. 

This year we are celebrating World Environment Day as a company, giving a little bit back to our environment, and to the local community. The Mataura River is one of the regions biggest assets.  We have committed to a clean-up project at Monaghans Beach, on the river bank just out of Gore.

The area has been a little neglected, overgrown and littered with rubbish that people have been dumping.  We're going to close for the day, and have all staff help on the project!  The plan is to pick up rubbish, cut down overgrown and dead vegetation, fill in holes in driveway and install a bench seat.

We hope that the tidy up will encourage locals to visit the area more often, and deter people from dumping rubbish there.  It is a beautiful spot to take the kids for a walk along the river.

World Environment Day is observed in over 100 countries, as an opportunity to raise awareness and encourage action on environmental issues.
