Samsung Coastal Clean-up 2020
New Zealand

On October 9th and October 16th, employees of Samsung New Zealand office spent the afternoon cleaning up the coast of Tuff Crater and Milford Estuary, as part of Samsung’s Global Volunteering Month of October.

Partnering with Sea Cleaners, a non-for-profit organization promoting clean marine environment, Samsung employees cleaned up the precious coastlines of the country.

On October 9th, 27 Samsung employees picked up wastes that amounted up to 10 rubbish bags over the course of the afternoon.

“It’s an easy way to make a positive difference to the environment as well as working towards a meaningful goal together as a company,” said Courtney White, a PA executive of Samsung New Zealand.

Along with the partnership with Sea Cleaners, Samsung also collaborated with Eat My Lunch, a non-profit that donates meal to children-in-need for every meal purchased. On the volunteering activity, Samsung purchased 48 meals, which allows 48 children to be able to enjoy a beautifully made lunch.

Following the great work, another group of 21 employee volunteers managed to fill over a trailer load of rubbish in Milford, North Shore community on 16th. It included three car tires, a car bumper and an assortment of rubbish which was destined for the local beach and ocean.

“Taking small actions within our local community makes a huge positive impact on our environment,” said Alex Vernon, a Field Liaison Officer.

Under the CSR Vision of “Together for Tomorrow! Enabling People,” Samsung holds the unwavering belief that success is tied to sharing with those around us. Samsung will continue to give back to the community through various programs and activities.
