Sure volunteers clean Cobo Beach

April 3rd, 2012 by Sure

Volunteers from Sure collected 15 bags of rubbish when the team Spring-cleaned Cobo beach.

As part of Sure’s new community project on the last Friday of each month, staff will be clearing rubbish from one of the island’s beaches.

Amongst the items collected at the first beach clean by the 27 staff were car parts, rubber gloves, wellies, fishing hooks, a crab pot, deodorant bottles, building rubble and sweet wrappers. Staff from the business’s two sites came together for the task.

Sure chief executive Eddie Saints said the staff at Sure wanted to give something back to the community.

‘We were surprised how much rubbish we found in our first beach clean. We are very privileged to have such beautiful beaches all around us and we hope that our efforts will benefit islanders, make the environment safer for the wildlife that inhabit it and be another way for Sure to give something back to the community we are so pleased to serve,’ he said.

As one of the largest companies on the island and as the business’s facilities have grown Sure has become one of Guernsey’s top consumers of power.

‘We make every effort to use power efficiently through the use of low power base sites and the installation of energy efficient equipment but we wanted to do more to offset our environmental impact and complement our existing green initiatives,’ said Mr Saints.

The weekly beach clean has been approved by the States of Guernsey Environment Department.

Staff were given Sure branded tabards and supplied with bags and gloves and the company’s health and safety officer ensured that all rubbish was disposed off in the appropriate way.
