Trekking for Trash

BY Vicky du Toit

PORT ELIZABETH – In aid of raising public awareness about keeping coastlines waste free, a group of local citizens joined Camilla Howard and Micheal Baretta at Kings Beach on Saturday, the 16th of February to assist the eco-warriors in their efforts to a cleaner environment.


The CAN DO Trekking for Trash beach walk was well attended and more than 50 rubbish bags were filled in less than 2 hours.  A total of 1800 kilometers have been covered by the dynamic duo, who aim to collect 7 tons of waste in total before the end of their 3000km trek.
People of all ages aided in scrambling the beaches collecting litter, setting a prime example for the public of Port Elizabeth.  “This should be done more often” said Agripper Mbinda from The Waste Trade Company, who also joined the walk in the fight against waste.


It was clear that Micheal and Camilla’s “never say no” attitude was immediately adopted by all who attended the event. “It’s not just about environmentalism, it’s a state of mind” stated Micheal, who believes that people should be taught to have pride in their living areas and immediate environment.
