ASEZ WAO’s “No More GPGP” in Atlanta, U.S., Too
Raising awareness of environmental issues in the global community
On January 19, 2020, approximately 150 ASEZ WAO members conducted a plastic reduction campaign called “No More GPGP [Great Pacific Garbage Patch]” in Loganville, GA, U.S. It was a large-scale cleanup that included members who traveled from Korea, local members, city hall officials, and even the Mayor of Loganville, Ray Martinez.
The participants collected about 45,000 pieces of plastic that day. Mayor Martinez admired the enthusiasm of the members who collected an enormous amount of plastic waste rather quickly, and expressed his support by signing a Memorandum of Understanding [MOU].
Additionally, members introduced ASEZ WAO and the “No More GPGP” campaign to the councilors and city hall officials of Atlanta, Loganville, and Augusta. They promised continuous cooperation with ASEZ WAO.
ASEZ WAO will continue to raise citizens’ awareness of environmental issues through various campaigns, seminars, and forums. They will also meet companies and governments to seek solutions to address the plastic problems. Furthermore, in an effort to become the catalyst that changes the world, they have set a goal of collecting 1.8 trillion pieces of plastic waste via continuous cleanups.
