Sanoh Employees Participate in Watarase Drainage Basin Cleanup Operation
On April 18, a total of 275 Sanoh Group employees and their families participated in the annual Watarase Drainage Basin cleanup operation organized by the Tonegawa River Upstream Users Association.
The Watarase Drainage Basin, which spans across the four prefectures of Ibaraki, Tochigi, Gunma, and Saitama, is the largest drainage basin in Japan. A designated wetland site under the Ramsar Convention since July 2012, the basin’s rich natural environment is home to a great variety of plant life and wild birds, and it attracts many visitors all year round as a place of relaxation and recreation.
In an effort to preserve this natural environment, this year’s cleanup operation was carried out at seven different sites around the basin; 2,477 people from local companies and government organizations in the city of Koga took part and collected a total of 3.5 tons of trash. The amount of trash collected has been decreasing year by year.
This is the 15th year of the Watarase Drainage Basin cleanup operations, and Sanoh has been participating since the very first year. When sharing their impressions following this year’s operation, several new Sanoh employees that had participated for the first time commented that taking part in the company-organized activity to contribute to the local community had raised their awareness of environmental conversation.
