Coastal Cleanups Antonio da Silva-Swart's passion lies with hiking the coast and organising cleanups along the Whale Coat coastline, either with school learners or volunteers from the area. On the ďŹ rst Saturday of each month, I hold a cleanup of the coast and collect the marine debris with Volunteers. The area gets decided after I have done a reconnaissance of the coast or one of my area specialists lets me know what it looks like in their area. The bags are sponsored by Plastics SA and I take the debris to Whale Coast Conservation Green House in Vermont, for analysing/counting and sorting. The results get emailed to Plastics SA for the annual international coastal cleanup day and yearly results. These results get sent to the International Coastal Cleanup Organisation for global reporting. Volunteers can contact Antonio 0724624271 Please read these articles for more information and inspiration. A man with a passion for cleaning up. Groep maak maandeliks strand skoon. Residents join in cleaning up our coast. Please read more about and support the coastline cleanups! It is fun and you will feel great about your Eco-respecting participation.

Let’s Do Random Acts Of Kindness

When driving along the N2 between Cape Town and The Garden Route, or veer off onto the R43 going to Hermanus or Gansbaai, you might want to STOP and smell the roses, taste the wine, buy the cheese, go for lunch, marvel at local talent, ďŹ nd hidden gems, make memories, take home souvenirs. If you are planning a trip, be sure to include stops along the way at these wonderful places. View our Favourite places on the map. Participation and suggestion are welcome. Please mail requests to Favourites@NosyRosy.co.za
