Nature offers so much but it is the responsibility of us all to conserve the unique natural heritage resources of the West Coast for the benefit of future generations.
According to CapeNature the environment works like a natural factory to provide us with clean, fresh water and other natural ecosystem services. Water travels all the way from the majestic mountains, through rivers, wetlands and dams before it comes out of your tap. Any rubbish ending up in the water ways and the ocean has a severe impact on the natural environment.
The process starts with each one of us – reduce your consumption of disposable items and re-use and recycle plastic, glass, tin and paper.
Start at home and then begin a recycling or litter prevention project at your school or in your community.
Our future depends on it and that is why CapeNature developed the #DontBeTrashy campaign to address littering behaviour in the Western Cape.
