Big Sunday beach cleanup on the main beach of Matemwe, where fishermen, hotel guests and kids spend most of their time during the day. The high tide early in the morning will leave many pieces of plastic and others debris, including fabric clothing, used ciment bags, lonely flip flops and many other items  that get stuck in the lagoon. We will get the help from Zanrec, a recycling company which works on the island and has set educational and awareness programs for the local population.
