Rabeal Initiative Drives Environmental Conservation with Market Cleanup in Calabar

Calabar’s vibrant Marian Market scene saw a transformative effort earlier Today as the Rabeal Initiative led an impactful cleanup and sensitization campaign under their “Rabeal Eco-Revive Program for Environmental Conservation and Climate Action.”  This initiative came hot on the heels of their successful tree planting project the previous day and the conclusion of their 20 Days Environmental Activism just a week ago.

Volunteers from Rabeal Initiative, embarked on a mission to clean one of the city’s popular markets- Marian Market , tackling waste and promoting sustainability. The cleanup operation resulted in the collection and proper disposal of significant waste, leaving the market noticeably cleaner and healthier.

Complementing the cleanup, Rabeal Initiative conducted a sensitization session aimed at market traders and shoppers. The session emphasized the importance of proper waste management, the negative impacts of plastic pollution, and the benefits of sustainable practices. Practical tips on waste reduction, recycling, and the use of eco-friendly products were shared, fostering a culture of environmental responsibility within the community.

Reflecting on the event, the Team Leader, Racheal Bassey  revealed their commitment to environmental conservation: “Following our tree planting project and the recent 20 Days Environmental Activism, this market cleanup is another step in our ongoing effort to engage the community in meaningful environmental action. We believe in empowering people to make a difference, and together, we can achieve a sustainable future.”

The Rabeal Eco-Revive Program for Environmental Conservation and Climate Action underscores Rabeal Initiative’s dedication to grassroots environmental activism. Their continuous efforts are creating ripples of positive change, inspiring more community-driven environmental initiatives.
