“The more helping hands and assistance there are, the more we can protect marine life and ensure a clean environment for all,” said Clean Surf Project founder Denzil van der Westhuizen.

He said the past few months have been incredibly busy and overwhelming, with cleanup crews from the Clean Surf Project as well as the Sapphire Coast Tourism PEP (Public Employment Programme) working daily to clean and maintain the shoreline stretching from Dakota Beach to Illovo Beach as well as Ilanda Wilds at the Amanzimtoti Sports Center.

“Our gratitude goes out to all the team members involved for continuing the fight against plastic pollution, whether the sun is shining, the wind is blowing, it is raining, etc. It is certainly not the most difficult task. easiest and most comfortable, but most rewarding in the end with the removal of plastic waste from coastlines and river banks,” Denzil said.

They invite community members, local organizations and/or businesses to join in the cleanup to keep the oceans plastic-free and clean.
