It was a morning well spent as local residents joined the group and enthusiastically collected strewn glass, metal, paper, wire, plastic, fishing nets, rubber, shoes and more. The team collected more than 65 pounds waste between 7 and 8 a.m. The beach cleanup was ably supported by the Goa Waste Management Corporation.

While in Goa, Ruggiero jointly launched a program to recycle plastic waste in Goa with Francis D’Souza, Minister for Urban Development. An estimated 4 to 5 tons of plastic is likely to be collected every day through this recycling project. Collected plastic will be converted into useful products like t-shirts, fabric, backpacks, etc., and the hard-to-recycle, low-end plastics like carry bags, laminates and more will be used to manufacture compressed boards, co-incineration in cement kilns, road laying and pyrolysis.
