A big shout out to some of the Concourse team in Singapore on their CSR initiative who volunteered their time at the weekend by heading to Pulau Ubin to take part in a clean up. Since the beginning of 2019, over 8250kg of rubbish, mainly plastics and aluminium cans, has already been cleared on the island! We’re happy to say that we care, we’re clean and we’re keeping it green! This is part of the CSR initiative that Concourse is dedicated to supporting.
Pulau Ubin is an island northeast off the mainland of Singapore. The island contains cycle trails and footpaths which take visitors around the granite quarries and traditional villages. The island of Pulau Ubin is inhabited by Kingfishers and bulbul birds at the mangroves of the Chek Jawa Wetlands. Nature lovers flock here on weekends as Pulau Ubin supports a rich ecosystem teeming with flora and fauna as well as other wildlife such as monkeys, butterflies, wild boars, monitor lizards and birds. Lots of micro plastics and other rubbish end up being mistaken for food by the animals found on the islands. For this reason it is important to continually clean up the shore line and the forest. Concourse aims to raise awareness for the littering problem that is on Pulau Ubin.
