Be Like Glenn – St James Clean-Up

After noticing how St James beach in Cape Town gets re-covered in litter after each high tide, Glenn Moncrieff concludes that we need to cut the problem of waste off at the source, by avoiding unnecessary packaging and re-using what we do buy. Now if we could all adopt that mindset, the world would be a much cleaner and healthier place. For documenting his efforts, Glenn gains entry into our Tuffy Beach Clean-Up competition, which puts him in the running to win a brand new shred stick compliments of Firewire and Share The Stoke Foundation.

“Every day at Dangers beach the locals pick up plastic and litter while walking their dog or after a surf. It’s a small beach so we can clean the whole place in less than an hour. But no matter how spotless we leave it, the next day after high tide the beach is covered in filth again.”

“Coming back to see your beach re-covered in litter makes you realise how much garbage is really out in the ocean. Every Tuffy bag helps, but it is a literal drop in the Ocean. We need to try cut this off at the source, reduce our wastage, avoid unnecessary packaging and re-use what we have already.” – Glenn Moncrieff
