International Coastal Clean-up Day

Hands combine to clean beaches

The Port Shepstone beachfront received a spring clean last Saturday. The Beekman Group and Ray Nkonyeni Municipality waste management staff members formed part of a global marine clean-up involving thousands of people from all around the world last Saturday, when they joined hands and cleaned up the Port Shepstone beachfront. Everyone ignored the rain and hoped it would go away.

It didn’t, but that did not deter the large contingent of volunteers from cleaning up the beach. The third Saturday of September is always International Coastal Clean-up Day. Ray Nkonyeni Municipality waste management officer, Tsepho September, said that as it affects the health of the ocean, our trash ultimately affects the health of the whole planet.
