Cape Town – The Two Oceans Acquarium has called on everyone who cares about the well-being of the oceans and the environment to take part in its "trash bash" clean-up of the Monwabisi Beach coastline near Khayelitsha.
All that volunteers will need to bring to the two-hour clean-up on May 25, from 9am to 11am, will be their favourite sun hats and sunblock, water in a reusable bottle, and reusable hand gloves.
“We want to do more to tackle plastic pollution in our waterways and we want you to join us,” said the aquarium’s communications and sustainability manager, Helen Lockhart.
“Cleaning up isn’t just good for the environment, it is also good for those taking part.
“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,” she added.
