Kensa Heat Pumps, the Truro-based manufacturer of renewable technology ground source heat pumps, showed its support for the local community and World Environment Day (5th June 2018) by sponsoring and litter picking its way across Par beach’s golden sands as part of a community clean-up initiative to improve Cornwall’s beaches for people to enjoy.
World Environment Day encourages worldwide awareness and action for the protection of our environment. The theme for 2018 is beating plastic pollution, so the clean-up at Par beach in St Austell, helped raise awareness of the importance of looking after Cornwall’s beautiful beaches, wildlife and sea and encouraged people to take their rubbish home with them.
Kensa Heat Pumps said: “As a Cornish manufacturer Kensa Heat Pumps is thrilled to support this local cause, which echoes our ethos to make a real difference to the community and protect our environment.”
The event was organised by Safer Cornwall St Austell, a collective of public, private and voluntary sector organisations who have joined together with the aim to make Cornwall’s communities safer and cleaner by tackling anti-social behaviour, rough sleeping, drug and alcohol abuse, as well as improving the environment. Local agencies joining Kensa, Safer St Austell and local volunteers in the beach clean included Cosgarne Hall, Addaction, Community Safety from Cornwall Council and the Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service.
Helen Catherall from Addaction and Safer St Austell said: “Our beach clean to coincide with World Environment Day is just one many positive activities of Safer St Austell. In the past year Safer St Austell has made environmental improvements to St Austell as well as working to resolve local concerns about anti-social behaviour in the town.”
The Mayor of St Austell, Councillor Gary King, along with the Deputy Mayor Councillor Tim Styles added: “This was a terrific effort from all involved, we look forward to working with you again in the future.”
