Plastic Free Oceans Cape Town

Plastic Free Oceans Cape Town

Personal message

On Friday 07 September we were alerted of a "Plastic Island" that had washed up on Milnerton Beach | Cape Town

Pics and details here

We managed to mobilise 10 people - from a combination of car guards to Clean C staff and a group of volunteers to help cleanup the beach.

In 2 hours we managed to collect 168 bags full of (mostly) plastic, tin and other general rubbish.

A whoping 1.6 tons.

The next day we went back to the beach and carried on the cleanup filling another 50 bags - bringing the total to over 2 tons collects.

Our aim is to raise funds to ensure that the next time this happens - and it will...that we can immediately get a team of cleaners up onto the beach to pick up the litter - but more importantly we want to work towards 3 things:

  1. Stopping the litter from getting onto the beach in the first place
  2. Educating youth around the importance of looking after the environment
  3. Sorting, cleaning and removal of the plastic collected and take that away for recycling so it doesnt land up on landfill 

Costs involved for a cleanup like the one on 7 September 

Labour - R1000

Refreshments - R850

Transport/logistics - R1200

Recycling/sorting/equipment - R650

Our goal is to raise R15 000 which will give us enough in the bank that when this happens (three times) we can get a team together to cleanup the "mess"

We also want to get as many kids to regular cleanups throughout the month. A fun day on the beach first and foremost. But then doing a cleanup and learning about the environment. Where litter is coming from. Where something goes when you throw it away. Etc...
