As Nigeria joins her counterparts to commemorate the 2021 World Clean Up Day, Clean Technology Hub in collaboration with Susty Vibes over the weekend engaged in a Clean Up and Sensitization Exercise to Karimo Market, Abuja.

Speaking in an interview with LEADING REPORTERS at the event, Coordinator, Volunteer Network, Clean Technology Hub, Onyekachi Chukwu stated that the exercise is aimed at sensitizing the people on the essence of having a clean environment and the implication of dirty environment to their health and to the community at large.

According to Onyekachi, the exercise is in tandem with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 13 on climate action
which urge everyone to take action to combat climate change considering its negative impact globally.

She noted the impact of climate change is disrupting national economies and affecting lives, costing people, communities and countries dearly today and even more tomorrow.

Explaining, Onyekachi noted that “What causes erosion is due to blocked gutters which is from waste disposed in the water ways, so we are trying to raise this awareness and tell them that we need to make our environment clean for a better and healthier life and a better society”.

Corroborating, Susty Vibes said they realize that a lot of places in Abuja especially the markets are not used to waste management and clearing their space an act which causes a lot of havoc.

Susty Vibes noted that “There is dump site here and right beside the dump sites are peoples houses, so we are here to sensitize them on how to keep their environment clean and also talk to them on recycling”.

“We have gone to several markets and this is not our last bus stop.

“What we are doing differently is to make environmental activities engaging and fun”. Susty Vibes added.
