Peninsula Beverages (PenBev – local bottler of The Coca-Cola Company products in the Western and Northern Cape) are challenging all Capetonians to roll up their sleeves and to do their bit to keep our coast clean this International Coastal Clean-Up day on Saturday 20 September 2014. PenBev will again set the example by cleaning up Milnerton Beach, at the Lighthouse, with the help of Clean C and learners from Sinenjongo High School.
Looking after the environment should be an everyday occurrence and to create awareness about the impact of litter on our beautiful country, PenBev and Clean C will be educating 120 learners from Sinenjongo High School in the disadvantaged community of Joe Slovo Park, at the Sunset Beach clean-up on Saturday 20 September 2014.
The festivities begin at 08:30 when the learners will arrive at the beach and receive gloves and recycling bags. An introductory speech and safety demonstration will be made, and then it’s clean up time! After the beach is left spotless, the learners will be treated to a meal and refreshments for their hard work.
The public are encouraged to join in the clean-up and will be given recycling bags and gloves. In 2013, a total of 55 791 857 kilograms* of litter was collected around the world for International Coastal Clean-Up day, so let’s see how much litter we can collect and make a difference in the neighbourhood.
