Shaniera Akram pledges to reduce plastic usage this year
KARACHI: Shaniera Akram, the spouse of Pakistani cricket legend Wasim Akram, has vowed to play her part in environmental sustainability and in reducing the use of plastic.
The distinguished personality stepped forward on her official Instagram handle, express her annoyance and displeasure over the litter left behind by picnickers at Sea View beach (also known as Clifton Beach), while urging the masses their vital part in protecting the environment.
“We work hard to ensure there is no plastic waste lying around and polluting our beaches. Yet, even after two days of a clean-up, there is even more plastic wastage than the last time. Seeing this is heartbreaking, not only because our efforts are not showing any results but also because this plastic waste will be our downfall,” the philanthropist expressed her concern on Instagram.
“This new year, I want us all to promise ourselves to do better. Protect the environment, recycle and reuse your plastic products, reduce your contribution to plastic waste. I am going to #FaceThePlastic head-on, will you?” asked Akram.
