In Lebanon, the branch of the Burger King is supporting the World Cleanup Day, the largest civic action in the world.

Lebanon’s Burger King has invited  it’s followers in Instagram to team up and join the World Clean Up Day  on the 15th of September at Ramlet El Bayda to help clean up the shore.

Waste that is dumped on beaches ends up in our oceans. It is estimated that 80% of the waste floating around in the oceans is mismanaged waste carried to the sea through our beaches and waterways. Therefore, working together on land with local leaders, governments and local and international companies is the first urgent step in protecting nature in both water and on land.

Burger King will give free food vouchers to all participants of World Cleanup Day. On the 15th of September Burger King will use only recyclable items and they are going to partner with the providers for more sustainable solutions toward Zero Waste.
