Lend a hand at first #CleanBlueLagoon beach clean-up of 2023

(Northglen News) Picture: Luc Quevauvilliers is always willing to lend a helping hand at the #CleanBlueLagoon clean-ups.

Organisers behind the #CleanBlueLagoon initiative have encouraged the community of Durban to get behind the first clean-up of the year which takes place on Saturday, January 21. The clean-up will take place at the Beachwood Mangroves beach from 08:00 to 11:00.

#ClueBlueLagoon is dedicated to cleaning up and maintaining not only the Blue Lagoon and Beachwood Mangrove areas but all areas of Durban that need improving. #CleanBlueLagoon clean-ups are community driven and promote regular involvement in the protection of our rivers and beaches.

“Even though the Adopt-a-River team has collected more than a thousand bags of rubbish, there will still be plenty for participants to pick up on the day,” explained Denise McCreadie. She added that everyone was welcome.

“Participants don’t have to stay for three hours and can do what they’re able to. Sometimes things are out of our control and don’t always work out as planned, but we will confirm that closer to the time. We hope to see residents there, and don’t forget to bring a friend,” she said.

Bags are provided, and participants are urged to bring a pair of gloves.
