Peninsula Beverages (PenBev – local bottler of The Coca-Cola Company product 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 21 September. PenBev will again set the example by cleaning up Sunset Beach in Milnerton 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 the Sinenjongo High School in the disadvantaged community of Joe Slovo Park, at the Sunset Beach clean-up on Saturday 21 September.
The festivities begin at 09:30 when the learners will arrive at the beach and receive a t-shirt, cap, 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 2012, a total of 4 603 957 kilograms* of litter was collected around the world for International Coastal CleanUp day, so let’s see how much litter we can collect and make a difference in the neighbourhood.
