(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) Over 300 employees from various dealerships within the Zubair Automotive Group (ZAG) volunteered last weekend to lend their support to the Nationwide Clean Up campaign organised by Clean Up Oman.


The environmental awareness initiative, which was sponsored by Zubair Automotive Group, took place at over 40 wilayats across the sultanate over a course of two days. A large number of volunteers from the local community also came together to do their part and raise awareness on the need to eliminate litter and preserve the local environment and wildlife.


As part of its sponsorship, over 300 members of ZAG staff and their families, including those from Zubair Enterprises Dhakliya and Zubair Enterprises Northern joined the campaign.


Leading by example, several members of ZAG management team also participated in the campaign including, Serdar Toktamis, group general manager of Zubair Automotive Group; Mark Tomlinson, general manager of General Automotive; Arun Kumar, general manager,Sayarti Group; Chris Edwards, general manager, Dhofar Automotive; and K Balaji, Zubair Automotive Group advisor.


Water, ice-cream and refreshments were provided at various locations and over 5,000 t-shirts distributed among the volunteers. At Bausher dunes, Zubair Automotive Group also provided vehicles from Can- Am to aid in the distribution of water and to transport garbage bags to the designated drop off points.


Toktamis said, ''As a proud Omani company it is part of our wider community responsibility to contribute towards the preservation of our environment. I would like to commend the efforts put in by every volunteer and hope that the awareness generated by this campaign will take us a step closer towards completely eliminating the habit of littering.'' With its 1,700km coastline, mountain ranges and vast desert, Oman offers some of the stunning landscapes in the region. With increasing visitors, these regions have become spots for litter and debris which can be harmful and even fatal to wildlife.
