Umhlanga River Cleanup - January 2022
Last Update: Wed 19th of January 2022
After the storms and heavy rains earlier in January, The Litterboom Project team responded swiftly by taking to social media to show the extent of damage in the Umhlanga River where we had quickly deployed a team of 10 staff.
To paint a picture, the plastic ‘blockage’ was approximately 3 meters deep and 70m upstream, which resulted in hundreds of thousands of kgs of plastic pollution.
What followed was a spectacular show of team work, with many organisations and individuals from around the world rallying together to remedy this bad situation!
A significant R200 000 was raised and allowed us to expand our team to 20 and deploy a TLB, as well as tractors and trailers (thanks to local farmer Rob West).
It has been a tremendous feat and we are privileged to have everyone support and believe in us to help tackle this environmental disaster.
