DURBAN: SOFT drink giant Coca Cola’s thirst to recycle every soft drink bottle it sells around the world by 2030 gained momentum in Durban on Saturday.
Coca Cola has teamed up with its bottling partners Plastics SA and embarked on numerous clean-up projects around the country. On Saturday, mop-up operations were done at the Beachwood Nature Reserve in Durban North and beaches in the city.
Their initiative coincided with International Coastal Cleanup Day (Saturday) and Clean-up and Recycle Week, which ran from September 10 to 15.
Refilwe Mofokeng, the founder of the Refilwe Mofokeng Foundation, was among many volunteers cleaning Durban's beaches.
Mofokeng, who is studying towards her PhD in marine biology and specialising in marine toxicology, said the outing was a success.
