Plastics industry and volunteers help to clean beaches and remove visible litter

Plastics SA supported the World Environment Day (5 June) and World Ocean Day (8 June) by sponsoring plastic bags, as well as gloves, rakes and other resources required for clean-ups that took place around the country.

The theme of this year’s World Oceans Day was “Ocean: Life and Livelihoods” and this annual event helps to shed light on the wonder of the ocean and how it is our life source, supports humanity and every other organism on Earth.  The focus of this year’s World Environment Day was on ecosystem restoration, with the theme “Reimagine. Recreate. Restore”.
