Bela Plastic‘ campaign is an initiative launched in Dahab in an effort to protect the environment and marine life in Dahab.

President of the City Council of Dahab, Tarak El-Baz announced the launch of the initiative in early July, the campaign will include workshops and trainings to help raise awareness about the danger that plastic use impose on the marine life. These workshops will be targeted towards the hotels and restaurants, where plastic is most used.

Moreover, banners and warning signs will be placed across the city of Dahab as another way of spreading awareness and caution to tourists. What’s even more impressive is that volunteer tourism organizations and a number of dive centers will take part in the initiative by cleaning up the beaches of Dahab.

Such a remarkable step follows a decision that was taken three months ago by Governor Ahmed Abdullah to ban the single-use plastic in the Red Sea governorate. 

Another initiative was launched in South Sinai reserve called “Khali al-Bahar Yetnafes”, also targeting the hotels and resorts. Aiming to raise more awareness on the critical issue of single-use plastic.

We hope to see the results of these initiatives very soon, and for the outcome to be apparent in the next few months, especially with Dahab being a touristic destination for its environment and stunning marine life that attracts many tourists, preserving its sites is certainly a must.
