Beach Clean-Up Day

 

Msambweni, September 2014,

The regular voluntary beach clean-up day is one of many ways to contribute to the conservation of our environment and the local community by raising environmental awareness and I am grateful for this opportunity. Hence, my team and I followed the call and set out to clean the beach here in Msambweni together with the representative of the local Beach Unit.

After two hours of hard work under the scorching sun and crawling through caves, we have collected eight big refuse bags full of plastic and glass bottles, worn-out shoes and other relicts of environmental neglect. Back at the shamba, we have emptied the bags and separated the waste for recycling. On the following Sunday I have loaded my small RAV 4 with all the collected recyclables and delivered them to Christopher`s company in Diani Beach. He not only makes a living out of reusing and recycling plastics and other materials but also of reconditioning old items and thus was very grateful for the big load.

I hope we have set a good example for our community and beyond and I am certain that we have made another small step on the path to living sustainably and contributing to the improvement of environmental health.
