A beach clean-up campaign this Saturday, paying tribute to World Environment and World Oceans Day, and in support of the Uzwelo Bags “Say NO to plastic” campaign, aims to remind Durbanites that 160 000 plastic bags are used globally every second, and that the five trillion plastic bags produced yearly could, side by side, encircle the world seven times.
To help save our planet, join organisers Expand a Sign and Uzwelo Bags at The Green Hub (on the Coconut Grove side of Blue Lagoon) from 8am until 10am. Durban’s InterCement team has already committed to adding 15 people to help in the clean-up operation.
Staff and volunteers will be given gloves and recycled Uzwelo Bags to carry the litter. Pictured are Tyron Govender and Donovan Pelser of Expand a Sign, with Sai Surajbali and Zamo Sithole.
