BSP's Go Green campaign targets students in five Pacific countries

03 November 2015

PORT MORESBY, (POST COURIER) - Bank South Pacific (BSP) will embark on one of the biggest Go Green clean-up events yet, involving hundreds of students across Papua New Guinea and five Pacific Island nations.

Friday November 13 is the BSP Annual Go Green School Clean Up Day and will be held across PNG, where BSP branches are located, and in parts of Fiji, Solomon Islands, Cook Islands, Samoa and Tonga. 

Participating students will be educated on the importance of the environment and how they can be responsible. 

After the pep talk the students will put theory into practice and get their hands dirty by cleaning their school communities.

The community is free to join local schools that have already registered. Teachers, parents and members of the community are encouraged to lend a helping hand in keeping the environment clean, green and healthy, by teaching and also setting an example for children to follow.   

Since 2010, BSP has hosted this Annual Go Green event in PNG, Fiji and Solomon Islands and 2015 much bigger with Cook Islands, Samoa and Tonga joining the BSP family.   

BSP is leading this worthy cause and providing litter bags, gloves, t-shirts, caps, wrists bands and bumper stickers. 

Merchandise aside, it is the message that counts and the 2015 theme is “Our Place, Our Planet, Our Responsibility”. 

BSP takes seriously the responsibilities that come with being a leader. And as the leading banking and financial services provider, it shares a commitment to build better communities BSP is one bank that is truly making a difference by committing millions in donations, sponsorships and causes that make a difference - this Annual Go Green School Clean Up day is one such initiative.
