Camps Bay resident Chris Von Ulmenstein is a woman on a mission. She regularly cleans the beach and spreads awareness of the environment during her daily walks along Victoria Road. It all started a year ago when Chris embarked on a journey to a healthy lifestyle. During one of her walks along the beach front, she saw a little stream filled with litter. She delayed her walk to clean up the stream – and so began her new journey. Chris also talks to people about the environment and encourages them to pick up litter. Slowly, she is gaining support from residents, homeless people and beachgoers. She says the litter endangers marine life.“I used to have the same attitude as everybody; that it is not my litter, why bother? But then I realised what was at stake and soon I started seeing the good in it,” she says.Chris is retired, and when she is not busy with her fitness journey that helped her lose 45kg in a year, she blogs and writes restaurant reviews. Chris is also a keen photographer in her spare time. V To find out more, visit her Facebook Page.
