Webhelp UK, one of the country’s leading business process outsourcers (BPO), has teamed up with The GRAB Trust to work on a new beach clean initiative which took place in Dunoon.
The event, which was held on Saturday 4th August at Dunoon’s West Bay, saw a 12 strong team from Webhelp take up the challenge to rid the beach of plastic and other waste materials. The GRAB trust – a charitable, social enterprise formed to address waste and recycling issues in Argyll & Bute – supported the Webhelp team by providing bags, equipment to pick up waste materials, and also protective clothing.
Benjamin Appleby at The GRAB Trust, said “As the issue of Marine Litter becomes ever more present in the public eye, it is gratifying to see companies like Webhelp getting out into the community and making a difference. Hopefully their great example will encourage others to get out there and take care of our environment.”
The beach clean was inspired by a wider Webhelp initiative which aims to phase out single use plastic across all of its UK sites. The removal of plastic cups alone will save over 240,000 cups per year, with the use of plastic straws and cutlery also being scaled back.
Anton Manley, Chief Operating Officer at Webhelp UK, said “In Dunoon we are lucky to work in one of the most beautiful parts of Scotland; and as such an integral part of the local community, we see it as our responsibility to support in helping to keep it that way.
“A massive thank you to everyone gave up their time to get involved; their passion and enthusiasm for protecting our environment really shone through.”
