International Coastal Cleanup Day 15 September 2018
Employees from The Table Bay enthusiastically hit the beach last to pick up litter and debris and restore the Sunset Beach to pristine condition. There were 14 volunteers – representing various departments who rolled up their sleeves. The team worked tirelessly alongside other volunteers who were also part of the Two Oceans Aquarium’s annual Coastal Clean Up Day, fondly dubbed #TrashBash.
They picked up all manner of litter, from packets and cold drink cans to discarded fishing hooks, tackle, plastic bags and wire.
“Marine and river pollution is a worrying scourge that is threatening the health and sustainability of our environment. It has a direct impact on indigenous plants, wildlife, birds and marine life. We wanted to take an active role in removing litter and pollutants from this beautiful beach area and hopefully inspire people in the community to be more conscious about cleaning up and conserving the environment as well,” says Sarah Prins, PR Manager at The Table Bay
