We are busy preparing for the 2019 Clean-up and Recycle Week with the highlight being the International Coastal Cleanup.
Please register your cleanup/s as soon as possible. We would like to capture all registrations by end August.
The number of citizen-based clean-ups have never been as many as now and this means that the need for audited clean-ups is more important. The International Coastal Cleanup fills that vacuum of information gathering. The data collected provides a citizen science based insight into the man-made material found on the coastline.
The International Coastal Cleanup is the largest coastal clean-up internationally and nationally and we are working towards covering as much of the coastal regions, offshore islands and waterways of South Africa.
We are also in search of those individual “champions” that organize cleanups during the year. If you know of someone that you think needs some recognition and some cash as a prize, please enter him/her/them for the Caroline Reid Award.
Please pass this message on to anyone that you believe could be part of this initiative to ensure that awareness is increased on non-littering and proper waste management, and how the lack of these factors is affecting the environment negatively.
