With the winter rains arriving, plastic is carried down rivers onto the beach where it escapes into the ocean. The north-wester winds also bring in pollution from the ocean, often thrown overboard from shipping vessels or washed in from other coastlines through the currents. This is the fifth edition of Plastic Free Mzansi brought to you by The Beach Co-op and @twygmag. @biru_experiments joins them again as our design and thinking partner to engage with researchers, designers, plastic experts and the public to drive and develop solutions to environmental issues.
