Together with Ocean Wise, Samsung team members cleaned up waterways across Canada



On October 11, Samsung Canada celebrated its annual Day of Giving as its team members across the country rallied together to support their local communities. This year, Samsung once again collaborated with Ocean Wise, a global conservation organization on a mission to protect and restore the world’s oceans, to coordinate shoreline cleanups in the areas Samsung operates nationally.


Throughout the day, hundreds of Samsung employees dedicated their time to cleaning up pollution and litter from local public spaces and waterways. Collectively, Samsung team members collected 331 kg / 730 pounds of garbage from shorelines across Canada – the equivalent of cleaning up 9.5 km of shoreline.


“We are proud to have once again worked with Ocean Wise. I want to give a special thank you to the hundreds of Samsung team members who volunteered their time to give back to our communities,” said Jihoon Lee, President and CEO, Samsung Canada. “Samsung’s Day of Giving is one of our most important Citizenship initiatives, helping the communities where we live and work strive to be more environmentally conscious.”


Globally, Samsung continues to work towards realizing its Everyday Sustainability vision, with a commitment of zero waste to landfills and reduction of e-waste by 2025.
