Fine Music Radio and Plastics SA Coastal Cleanup at Milnerton Lagoon
Cape Town, Saturday 15 September 2018
FMR and Plastics SA to clean up Milnerton Lagoon
Following the success of last year’s Coastal Cleanup on Hout Bay Beach, Fine Music Radio and Plastics SA are preparing to once again make a difference. This year’s Coastal Cleanup is at Milnerton Lagoon on Saturday the 15th September at 10:00am.
The main advantage of cleanups is they reduce the mass of plastic before it breaks up into microplastics – once it is in tiny fragments, it is almost impossible to address.
Milnerton is close to the mouth of Rietvlei (Milnerton Lagoon) as well as the Black River and the storm drains that wash all central Cape Town’s street litter into the sea. As a result, Table Bay has lots more plastic litter than adjacent coastal waters.
Seal the Deal
There is space for 150 volunteers. Plastics SA will provide protective gloves and refuse bags. Refreshments will be served courtesy of Pick n Pay. The station needs to know how many people will be joining the cleanup for both catering and equipment purposes.
