OCEAN PLASTIC POLLUTION has reached crisis status globally. It is estimated 300 million tons of plastic have entered the oceans already.
Seven Clean Seas is a social enterprise based in Asia, created to remove plastic pollution from oceans and coastlines. Tom Peacock-Nazil, founder of Seven Clean Seas, said:
“The global plastic pollution crisis is getting worse and worse.
“As a keen traveler, I have visited hundreds of beaches all over the world and the plastic pollution problem is everywhere.”
On the 22nd of February Seven Clean Seas is hosting a Big Beach Clean Up in Malaysia, KL.
The location is Jeram Selangor, Remis Beach.
The exact location can be found on the Seven Clean Seas Facebook Events Page.
The beach clean is great for families, kids, adults and even pets.
They are focused on fun and keep the event appealing for everyone of all ages!
“Tom said – this location has been on our radar for a while and needs a lot of help!”
It’s predicted that this year alone 12.7 million metric tons of plastic will end up in the oceans. This is the equivalent of a full garbage truck worth of plastic entering into the oceans every minute.
This plastic not only pollutes the environment but also endangers, entangles and destroys marine, bird and coral life. By joining us on this beach clean you can make a difference.
Nazil said: “We started running volunteer beach clean-up events in Singapore and the response was incredible. To date, we have removed over 50,000 kilograms of plastic pollution from local coastlines. We want to start doing regular clean ups in Malaysia.”
If you cannot get down to our beach clean, Seven Clean Seas will raise funds through the sale of bracelets. For every bracelet sold they promise to remove 1 kg of plastic pollution from the oceans.
Nazil said: “Our Seven Clean Seas bracelet sales generate funding to scale up our ocean clean up operations.
“It will allow us to employ full time staff, hold more beach clean-up events and work internationally to combat the global ocean plastic pollution problem.”
