In collaboration with the Islamabad Wildlife Management Board (IWMB), SMEC Oil & Gas gathered over 150 volunteers to clean up the viewpoints along PirSohawa Road, a beautiful part of the Margalla Hills National Park that offers impressive views of the twin cities.
Unfortunately, the viewpoints have also become littering grounds, strewn with food, soda cans, bottles, and other non-biodegradable materials. The litter is not only an eyesore but also damaging to the natural environment.
Volunteers from SMEC, other private firms, universities and families enthusiastically participated in collecting around 450 kg of garbage.
This event, organised as part of the national campaign for a Clean & Green Pakistan, is part of an ongoing program of environmental protection initiatives organised by local community members of SMEC Oil & Gas, including Throw and Grow, a tree-planting campaign using seed balls. After a successful pilot, the Throw & Grow program is being expanded to target the planting of 100,000 seed balls across Pakistan ahead of the coming monsoon season.
