Boaters Against Plastic gather huge haul
In Singapore, 102 people collected more than two tonnes of rubbish in the first Boaters Against Plastic clean-up in the Southern Islands.
Singapore’s first Boaters Against Plastic clean-up in November resulted in 2,070kg – over two tonnes – of washed-up rubbish being collected from the Southern Islands of Hantu, Lazarus and St John’s.
Held on a Saturday morning blessed with nice weather, the event attracted 102 people on 21 boats and four jetskis, led by Nico Civelli’s MCY 86 Moana.
The event was co-organised and promoted by the Singapore Marine Guide and supported by Seven Clean Seas to clean up some of Singapore’s most popular boating destinations and bring awareness to the increasingly visible rubbish problem seen in the city’s waters.
