It’s at all times nice to see individuals who nonetheless work exhausting for change, when most of us may need already given up. Recycle Lebanon has been often cleansing up a few of Lebanon’s most sought-after seashores and public seashores.

Teaming up with Greenpeace, Recycle Lebanon is internet hosting a large seashore clear up occasion this Saturday on the Raouche Dalieh. The plastic gathered that day, will probably be grouped with plastic courtesy of Al Midan NGO, who will use it for a Di-Lab designed artwork set up that will probably be revealed throughout the August 12th Mashrou’ Leila live performance in Ehdeniyat!
