International Coastal Clean-up Day

 By Sonel Lindeque


Together with members of the public, LC19 spent a lovely morning on the beach on the 19th of September ‘15. Everyone helped make a difference by grabbing a bag and collecting all the waste on the Blue Horizon Bay beach. One cannot believe how many items of trash you can collect in just a couple of hours. The weirdest thing I personally found was a toothbrush, together with way to many plastic bags, glass bottles, cigarette buds and other items. It was clear that unless humanity changes it’s ways, Coastal Clean-ups should not just happen once a year, but clearly every time you take a stroll on the beach. Please try to always take along a bag and collect waste on your walks and help save our marine live and environment.
