The event began with a briefing ceremony from the coordinator of Sabers Pungli and then a speech by the Head of the Village of Giripurno. From here, all participants moved to the Buk Genjol River. Using various equipment, all participants began to pick up trash. Piles of rubbish are put into sacks, pulled together to the banks of the river, and loaded onto special vehicles carrying garbage carried by the Environmental Agency of Batu City
Then the participants were invited to have breakfast together with an appetizing rural special menu, to then go back down to the river to continue cleaning activities.
After the cleaning activities were completed, the event continued with an ecological discussion, hosted by a member of Batu Local Guides, Mad Berlin. On this occasion, the interim official of the Village Head of Giripurno conveyed quite a lot about Giripurno Village. Continued by the PHRI chairman, who requested that an official schedule be made so that PHRI members could always participate in the following activities. The Chairperson of the Family Welfare Education Activator, on this occasion also gave his appreciation and support for Sabers Pungli activities, where for the following week's activities, the Sabers Pungli coordinator will be held by the community she leads.
