Beach Clean Up Cape Town 2017
Help fight the mass ocean pollution at Ons Huisie
Our beaches are one of the biggest reasons that so many people flock to the Mother City every year; we even have some Blue Flag status beaches (an international award given to beaches that show excellence in cleanliness, amenities, environmental standards and safety). On the first Saturday of each month, the organisers of this event host a beach clean up at a different Cape Town beach. On Saturday, 1 July 2017, the Beach Clean Up heads to Ons Huisie in Big Bay, along the R27.
The emphasis at this event is on the environment, and so the organisers are asking that all patrons bring with them a pair of reusable gloves instead of using disposable ones. The issue with beach pollution is that 2-5% of plastics end up in the ocean eventually (according to National Geographic, but please bare in mind that it still amounts to 4.8 to 12.7 million tonnes of plastic waste), and by using disposable gloves you would be contributing to that percentage. Life in Cape Town has already undergone a big change from ten years ago; people are more conscious of the environment and they must continue to strive to make the environmentally sensible choice at all times.
The beach clean up idea started many years ago with the appearance of large amounts of oceanic pollution, and the people over at CleanC have taken the baton squarely in their hands and have made some serious steps to take on the pollution situation. There is a lovely story attached to this of a little girl named Zoe. She is in Grade 9 at Edgemead High School and is seven months into a 12 month volunteer commitment to CleanC. She will be able to tell you first-hand how the beach clean ups positively affect the area, and why they are definitely a good idea to keep going with them!
This time around Cabrinha Kites South Africa and Big Bay Surf have joined the fight and are ready to lend their support to the cause! Get those gloves on and sink your hands into some good-deeding for Mother Earth.
TICKETS FOR THE 2017 BEACH CLEAN UP CAPE TOWN AT ONS HUISIE BEACH
This event is absolutely free. Bags and gloves will be provided, but like we said, please try to bring a pair of reusable gloves so you don’t contribute to the huge scale plastic pollution that Cape Town is currently suffering from. Once you’re done with the clean up (which kicks off at 10am), why not stay in the Big Bay/Blouberg area for a spot of coffee or tea? We have an area guide and we think it’s pretty cool, so check it out.
If you have any questions or queries, please feel free to contact the organisers directly by posting a message on their event page (the link is listed below) or you can email ‘Passionate About Cape Town’ on firstname.lastname@example.org. Happy cleaning everyone!
