In support of Good Impressions partner, Sustainable Coastlines, Go Media invited a few clients and partners to hit the beach for a clean up last Friday.
Taking place at Point England Reserve in East Auckland, Go Media alongside The Blues, Northern Mystics, Netball NZ, Rascal Media, D3 and Stuff Media’s ‘Kea Kids’ rolled up their sleeves and helped to pick up litter around the beach and park area.
While the beach had been cleaned earlier that day, the GO-Getters removed a whopping 200L of rubbish, including shoes, underwear, cans, plastic wrapping, nappies, and glass bottles.
“As we sponsor over 100 organisations nationwide it’s not often that we get to spend quality time with each one, so hosting Go Green, Go Clean was a fantastic way to bring together our partners and clients while giving back to our local community,” says Isabella Dervan, Marketing Specialist at Go Media.
Some of the Blues and Northern Mystics players were in attendance as well including Hoskins Sotutu, Sam Darry, Jacob Ratumaitavuki-Kneepkens, Phoenix Karaka, Grace Nweke, Monica Falkner and Filda Vui.
Netball New Zealand’s Sponsorship and Funding Manager Aimee Preest says: “The beach clean-up initiative by Go Media was a fantastic idea which brought together the Mystics and Blues to support a great cause. The amount of rubbish we collected was incredible and it really opened my eyes to the impact of littering on our coastlines.”
Phil Vyver, Northern Mystics CEO adds that it is great to partner with an organisation that cares about preserving the environment.
“Our beaches are a treasure, and working together to do our part in maintaining their beauty has been an incredibly fulfilling experience.”
Blues GM Commercial, Todd Hewitt, said the club were proud of their long-standing relationship with Go Media. “It was great to have a few of the boys down at the beach last Friday to help clean up. Initiatives like this are perfect for our club – a chance to do something meaningful in our community as well as connect with both our sponsors and players from other codes in the region.”
Committed to environmental sustainability and dedicated to promoting positive social change through their Good Impressions initiative, Go Media is well-positioned to continue making a positive impact in local communities.
