Josh Redman, Ryan Hunt and Privi Makan - The Litterboom Project Ballito
With 80% of ocean plastic pollution originating up-river, we believe that using the rivers is far more effective for interception measures than beach clean-ups and has been vital in understanding why this is happening in the first place.
Over the past few years, we have successfully been able to prevent over 500 000kgs of plastic from reaching the ocean through the hard work of only a few strategically placed teams. TLP is currently active in 10 Rivers around South Africa - 8 in KZN and 2 in the Western Cape.
Not only do we believe in Litterbooms- as our last line of defense- but we believe in a source to sea approach, which includes land based interception, education and innovation.
