To say that plastic is a problem would be an understatement. Around eight million tons of plastic end up in our oceans each year, with marine creatures ingesting or entangling themselves in the plastic debris.
Thankfully, there are a number of incredible organisations that are looking to tackle this plastic problem, and Parley Coastal Cleanup is one of them. This global cleanup network aims to end marine plastic pollution and is rallying the Hout Bay community, organisations, schools and businesses to participate in International Coastal Cleanup day.
Around 50 million people around the world will be lending their hands and voice to help raise awareness around the plastic waste problem.
On Saturday the 18th of September, Parley, Sentinel Ocean Alliance, Oceano Reddentes, Blue Bay 2030, Community Cook Up IY, Hout Bay United Football Club, Eyethu Skatepark, Friends of the River Hout Bay & co will be hosting this impactful collaborative cleanup.
Join the movement and take part in Uniting The Valley – For The Ocean.
