THE Clean Surf Project in collaboration with Ocean 8 Beach Clean-Ups and KZN Beach Clean Up held a beach clean-up at Cutting Beach on Saturday, March 10.

Clean Surf Project’s school presentations that took place during the month of February and March 2018 has paid off with the attendance of the school at the clean-up. The sports team from Kuswag High School participated being inspired by the Clean Surf Project’s presentation on Friday, March 9.

Many bags of rubbish were filled with the overall picture being very positive compared to last year’s scenario with plastic being everywhere.

Denzil van der Westhuizen from the Clean Surf Project said: “So many schools came and were involved in the clean-up, people came from as far as Hillcrest to join in on the clean-up.

A total of 130 or more people came out to Cutting Beach and Van der Westhuizen believes a total of 500 kg was removed from that beach alone.

President of the Sapphire Coast Tourism Romy Wenzel said: “The only challenge I can foresee much as the surface appears to be reasonably clean by now [is] solid pieces of plastic like bottles, shoes, tubs, deodorant bottles and polystyrene hiding underneath, buried as tides and wind move sand around on a day to day basis, however, with it has been my second attendance at a Cutting Beach clean-up, great progress has been made overall and well done to all who were involved.”

The next beach clean-up will be at Baggies Beach on Saturday, March 17.
