Pasir Ris is a beach town in the North of Singapore which means 'White Sands' in English. Project White Sands mobilises the town of Pasir Ris to inculcate lasting behaviour change in the town through community mobilisation online and offline, raising awareness of marine plastic pollution and beach cleanups a way of life.
