November 15, 2011 by dyertrust

Here are the results of the South African 2011 International Coastal Cleanup (click on picture to download results). We have seen growth in numbers and our impact and it is only thanks to people wanting to make a difference. Marine debris serves as the scream of a social problem of littering and not caring. This years data echo more formal data that packaging from the fast food industry is growing at an alarming rate.

A source of waste that is also concerning is the littering at areas where young children congregate (schools etc.) and this year saw us for the first time tackling issues of litter on school grounds.

Thanks for not littering and diarise 15 September 2012 for the next International Coastal Cleanup.
