Over 40 Economic Development Department staff members from the eThekwini Municipality joined the Durban Green Corridors GreenHub Team to give of their time on Mandela Day and assist with a beach clean up at Blue Lagoon.
After a quick briefing on the work Durban Green Corridors does in the area, the team hit the beaches and mangroves, collecting over 10 bags of trash in little under two hours. Great to see folks getting involved, getting their hands dirty and caring for our oceans and marine wildlife which is so heavily impacted by marine litter.
Incidentally, after this week's heavy rains, the beaches around Blue Lagoon are again riddled with littler, which concentrates here. Almost every piece of litter discarded upstream eventually makes it's way down to our beaches. If you are keen to get tucked in and join the #CleanBlueLagoon initiative for another urgent clean up tomorrow (Saturday 30 July 2016) please click here for more information
