PLMJ Participates in Beach Clean Ups Across for Portugal for WLG | impact '23

Published on May 24, 2023

International Coastal Cleanup Day is an annual event held in September to raise awareness of the importance of protecting the coastal environment. As part of this initiative, PLMJ (Portugal) launched a campaign in June to encourage its staff to take part in one of four beach clean-up initiatives in September in Porto, Lisbon, Faro, and Luanda. Each office coordinated a clean-up activity on a nearby beach, focusing on the collection and removal of litter and debris. The overall aim of these initiatives is to cover a significant stretch of coastline, from Porto in Portugal to Luanda in Angola, by cleaning as many kilometres as possible.

By organizing these beach clean-up initiatives, our firm hopes to encourage people to take action to preserve coastal ecosystems. The events provide an opportunity for individuals to actively contribute to the cleanliness and well-being of the coastlines in these cities. By targeting specific locations close to each office, the initiatives foster a sense of local ownership and encourage participants to develop a deeper connection with their immediate coastal environment. Ultimately, it is our hope that the combined efforts of participants in these locations will have a significant impact on the health of coastal areas and promote a collective responsibility for the preservation of our oceans and beaches.
