Salience volunteered for “Operation Ozone” this weekend. Our Dubai team helped clean the beaches of Dubai in order to preserve ocean life. Together with 50 other volunteers from VolunteerinUAE.com we collected 12,538 cigarette buds in Jumeirah Open Beach. Operation Ozone is Volunteer in UAE’s umbrella project for all things green and environmentally conscious. It focuses entirely on collecting cigarette filters that are argued to be non-biodegradable, or at best, take decades to disappear from where they were dumped.
