Trash Bash – THIS Saturday at Rondevlei – Two Oceans

20 Mar 2019 Posted by in News and Events | Comments

 

Greetings All,

We look forward to everyone joining us on Saturday for the Trash Bash at Rondevlei  and make a difference once again. FOZR will be involved with this one and we are looking forward to seeing many of our locals there as well

Join the Two Oceans Aquarium Trash Bash at the next  regular environmental cleanup events in Cape Town. We want to do more to tackle plastic pollution in our waterways… And we want YOU to join us.

On 23 March, our first Trash Bash of 2019 will take place at Rondevlei Nature Reserve – let’s help clean up the hippos’ home!

Apart from being good for the environment, cleanups are also good for us humans. Anyone who’s spent a morning with us on a beach to pick up plastic pollution knows that it’s actually a chance to have a ball, to spend time with friends and family, to breathe in some fresh air and feel the sand between our toes, and to leave a slightly better, slightly more informed person.

We’re mixing things up for World Wetlands Day – Trash Bash will be heading inland to Rondevlei Nature Reserve on 23 March.

 

 

What better way to give back than having fun while doing it?

“Cleaning up isn’t just good for the environment, it is also good for those taking part. It leaves participants feeling that they are making a difference, playing their part and being responsible for something as fragile, yet incredibly important as the ocean. The outcome of these cleanups is often much bigger than just a cleaner beach, as it changes people’s view of their role within the environment and instils a sense of responsibility towards their surrounds. Cleanups also get us outdoors and to appreciate the beauty of our surrounds.”– Two Oceans Aquarium Communications & Sustainability Manager Helen Lockhart
