The Trash Bash is set to take place from 9am-11am, and there are prizes up for grabs determined by litter weight.
“Cleaning up isn’t just good for the environment, it is also good for those taking part,” says the Two Oceans Aquarium Communications and Sustainability Manager, Helen Lockhard.
“It leaves participants feeling that they are making a difference, playing their part and being responsible for something as fragile, yet incredibly important as the ocean. The outcome of these cleanups is often much bigger than just a cleaner beach, as it changes people’s view of their role within the environment and instils a sense of responsibility towards their surrounds. Cleanups also get us outdoors and to appreciate the beauty of our surrounds.”
