Group Marks Earth Day  March for Science to Tackle Plastic Pollution

Earth Day's theme this year, "End Plastic Pollution", is especially relevant for CHTA because preventing or removing plastic pollution remains a big challenge for many of our tourism enterprises and in fact, for many of our island destinations at large.

Earth Day Network will leverage the platform of Earth Day and the growing interest in the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day in 2020 as a catalyst for global action.

The federal government has urged Nigerians to take proactive measures that will end plastic pollution and protect the planet.

The programme was sponsored by the USAID, Ghana Recycling Initiative by Private Enterprises (GRIPE) and Earth Day Network with Afia Beach Hotel, Environment360, Plastic Punch, Hipsters of Nature, and Al-Rayan International School as partners.
