Muni Foundation, Fushifaru Maldives to host event for no single-use plastic

Plastic pollution has become a pressing global issue, and in response, an event organised by Muni Foundation together with Fushifaru Maldives, “Plastic Aa Nulaa,” is set to take place in Central Park, Hulhumale on April 29, 2024. This event aims to gather individuals, communities, and organisations towards the cause of eliminating single-use plastic, protecting our marine life and fostering a more sustainable way of living.

Plastic Aa Nulaa, which translates to “No to Plastic” in Dhivehi, is a movement towards a cleaner, greener future. Organised by Muni Foundation and Fushifaru Maldives, with the support of governmental bodies and corporate sponsors, this event promises to be a catalyst for change. Fushifaru has implemented a range of green initiatives, including a coral propagation project, the elimination of single-use plastic bags, planting trees and promoting sustainable cooking practices with a chef’s garden. The resort has been commended for its efforts to reduce its carbon footprint, preserve marine life and support the local community.

Muni Foundation, a prominent non-profit organization dedicated to environmental conservation, together with Fushifaru initiate Plastic Aa Nulaa. With a mission to create a more sustainable future for all, Muni Foundation has been actively involved in various initiatives aimed at preserving natural ecosystems and reducing environmental impact.

Fushifaru would also like to thank the venue sponsors HDC and Parley as well as the set-up sponsor Island Chief for their invaluable contributions.
