From this to this! It’s shocking to think this first video was our beach and all the rubbish that gets washed up from the city. Thank you to CBC and DHA, beach cleaning groups, school csr programs, local residents and especially to all the hard working beach cleaning staff who are down the beach every single day without fail, picking up rubbish, sweeping and patrolling the beach, I know every face and I know how proud you are for doing what you do. Thank you CBC & DHA for working with the local police stopping cars and trucks from entering the beach and patrolling the area making it safe for families and women and children to use in the mornings for exercise. Everyone has done such an amazing job but it shouldn’t stop here. We are sooo lucky to have this beach let’s keep it clean. Next stop, the city!!! #CleanPakistan #BeachClean #ThankYou #TimesAreChanging #KeepOurCityClean @thelastearthlings

The environment activist also thanked CBC & DHA for working with the local police stopping cars and trucks from entering the beach and patrolling the area making it safe for families and women and children to use in the mornings for exercise.

“Everyone has done such an amazing job but it shouldn’t stop here,” she said, “We are sooo lucky to have this beach let’s keep it clean. Next stop, the city!!!” 

The activist has been pretty vocal about pollution and climate change. She previously drew attention towards the matter through a series of tweets declaring the beach unsafe.

She also posted pictures of plastic waste to remind people how it has piled up on the shore. “A plastic bag takes between 1-10,000 years or more to decompose,” she tweeted earlier.
