Sunshine`s September Clean~Up Dive


On the 29th September 2012, 5 Fun Divers plus 4 Sunshine Instructors took part in Koh Tao`s monthly underwater clean up.

On the morning of the 29th we made our way to Mango Bay, the chosen site for this months Clean Up.

After a 50min Dive and a 20min Sort through and Data collecting we can say that together as a team we managed to retrieve 5kg of rubbish out of the ocean.

This clean up there were no "strangest items retrieved", thought the closest would be all the kitchen utensiles we recovered, such as spoons, forks, plates, bowls etc.

70% of the rubbish collected was made up of plastic food wrapping, while the remainder was mainly plastic bottles & fishing Line`s.

Sunshine wishes to thank all participants, we hope everyone had a great time & learned some valuable clean up skills.  Sunshine also wishes to thank PADI & Project AWARE for the fantastic new mesh clean up bags that they donated to various Dive Schools, they work a treat for collecting the rubbish in!
