The Beach Co-Op organisation will commemorate the start of Plastic Free July with a two hour beach clean-up of Mouille Point on 29 June.
In the fight against marine pollution, Beach Co-Op and the Two Oceans Aquarium will return to the same beach at the end of July to do a comparative clean-up.
The organisation will also challenge participants to give up three [Dirty Dozen] items that are found on the beach clean-ups conducted from July onwards. This is part of the #PlasticFreeManzi challenge that they will be launching in collaboration with Twyg and WWF South Africa.
“We use beach cleanups and our Dirty Dozen methodology as a way to educate and activate people in becoming citizen scientists… It will also change the way that you view and use plastics.”
