To celebrate World Water Day 2015, we will be organizing a Beach cleanup in collaboration with Panga Chumvi Resort and with the help of ZANREC, an innovative waste management company on Zanzibar Island. The event will start at 10am , as the tide will start going out, so plenty of time to pick up the maximum of trash!
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.
September is Project AWARE’s Debris Month of Action – a time when thousands of scuba divers around the world unite and take action against marine debris – the ocean’s silent killer. But don’t think of it as just a one-time dive to take out the trash. It’s so much more than that. It’s a rallying cry. A rumble, if you will, with one of the biggest ocean issues of our time – marine debris.
