Trekking for Trash Beach Cleanup

BY Vicky du Toit

Covering 3000km by foot in seven months is enough to brag about, but not only did the dynamic duo do this, they also cleaned up whilst on their way!  Michael Baretta and Camilla Howard have taken their last steps in the 7 month CAN DO! Trekking for Trash adventure.  Starting in Alexander Bay and finishing in Kosi Bay on the Mozambique Border.


The dynamic duo had decided that they wanted to pursue their passion for the environment by raising awareness and educating South Africa.  Leaving the comfort of their homes and undergoing a complete lifestyle change, they managed to touch the lives of many.  This journey may have changed their lives forever.


Baretta used his experience in marketing to secure sponsorship whilst Camilla took control of planning the routes and logistics.  Since the beginning of their journey they have visited 15 schools across the country and hosted 6 beach cleanups.


A total of 7155kg of litter was collected during their Trek.  The Eco Warriors will continue to raise awareness about littering and caring for the environment. 
The Waste Trade Company is very proud to have been part of this event and we wish them all the best in their future endeavours.
