Tamuning, Guam, Saturday, September 10, 2022 - GTA proudly participated in the 2022 International Coastal Cleanup hosted by the Bureau of Statistics and Plans, drawing in approximately 40 employees and their family members.
The group of volunteers swept the shores of Guam from Alupang Beach to the Paseo in Hagatna, picking up hundreds of trash ranging from cigarette butts, aluminum cans, and plastics, to name a few. Through its Team Up for Guam volunteer program and GTA Gives community initiatives, GTA gives back to our local communities.
The Ocean Conservancy founded the International Coastal Cleanup in 1986, and then in October 1995, Guam started the worldwide effort to prevent pollution with three sites. Now in its 26th year, it has grown with over 29 locations and over 4,000 volunteers. The BSP leads the effort each year with volunteers from federal and local government agencies, private businesses, and non-profit organizations.
