The cleaning of the Blue Lagoon is scheduled for Saturday
DURBANITES are encouraged to join the next #CBL (Clean Blue Lagoon) on Saturday October 30 at Beachwood Mangroves.
Organizer Denise McCreadie said the more people there are, the better the planet needs everyone’s help to preserve it for future generations.
âHumans need nature more than nature needs humans. However, the way humans destroy the planet, it looks like all of these nice sights won’t last long. We cannot blame the government for the garbage in our city; it is our responsibility to keep our city clean and to involve our children in the cleanups as well, âshe said.

The eco-warriors, who will attend the event, must wear their gloves, sunscreen, masks, water and disinfectants.
âBlack bags will be provided and the entire Covid-19 protocol will be followed. No mask, no entry, âsaid McCreadie.
She asked all volunteers to wear the correct shoes.
âYou will have to cross a section of the river, so please choose your shoes accordingly. You can also walk, which is long, but you will meet the beauty of nature, which is worth experiencing, âshe said.
McCreadie said cleanup attendees are visiting the Facebook group, Clean Blue Lagoon, for updates.
