Around 200 bags of plastic, styrofoam and other non – biodegradable nonsense was scooped off the beaches across SA during the Tuffy Clean Your Beach Campaign. Each month one lucky human was awarded a Firewire surfboard for their efforts – but the real prize was seeing the epic transformation, right?
The plastic problem is a devastating one that is slowly starting to gain more attention, and as surfers who engage in the ocean daily, it is our duty to be at the forefront of the journey towards cleaner beaches.
The campaign may be over but thanks to the efforts of Tuffy, Firewire and Share The Stoke, much needed awareness has been raised and there is a new group of ocean lovers frothing to make clean ups a part of their everyday lives.
