On Friday 7 July, 2023, a cleanup of the Kawarago Beach in Hitachi City, Ibaraki, was conducted by volunteer members of our Taga Plant as part of our initiatives to achieve a society harmonized with nature.
This cleanup activity is held every year, and this year it was attended by about 200 participants, including employees of Taga Plant. They collected litter from the beach and boardwalk and also weighed the litter after it was collected to determine what types of litter were most common. The majority of the litter collected was tree branches, etc., while the next most common type was plastics, including plastic bottles.
The results will be used for future cleanup activities and efforts to conserve biodiversity.
