Looking to do something meaningful for Mother Earth this coming Earth Day? Seven Clean Seas will hold a beach clean-up on Apr 22 from 7.30am to 10am.

Seven Clean Seas is an ocean and beach clean-up crew that is dedicated to cleaning the seas and beaches. It operates in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, the United Kingdom and Brazil.

Held at Changi Coast Walk, participants can play a part in removing hazardous debris from the beach.

Participants will gather at Constant Wind, Changi at 7.45am before a safety briefing at 8am. The clean-up will be from 8.15am to 9.30am, with a picture taking session and debrief at 9.45am. The event will conclude at 10am.

Those joining are advised to wear covered-toe shoes and bring along a filled reusable water bottle, sunscreen, bug spray and a pair of safety gloves. They can also buy a pair of gloves at the venue for $5. 

Seven Clean Seas will also launch its online shop in the upcoming weeks. The shop will sell t-shirts, tote bags, hats and reusable bottles. 

For every product purchased, buyers will be able to choose how much plastic Seven Clean Seas will remove from the ocean on their behalf. This can range from 1kg to 10kg.
