Clean Surf Project has been conducting presentations at local schools throughout February and March, and these are certainly paying off. The sports team from Kuswag High School lent a hand at Saturday’s clean-up after drawing much inspiration from the previous day’s presentation by CSP.

“Many bags of rubbish were filled, with the overall picture being very positive compared to last year’s scenario with plastic, plastic, plastic being everywhere,” explained Romy.

“The only challenge I can foresee is that, as much as the surface appears to be reasonably clean by now, there are solid pieces of plastic such as bottles, shoes, tubs, deodorant bottles and polystyrene hiding underneath, buried as the tides and wind move sand around on a daily basis.

However, with it having been my second attendance at a Cutting Beach clean-up, it is clear that great progress has been made.”
