They have been recognized for their commitment to protecting waterways and restoring rivers.
Plastics SA presented the Caroline Reid Award to Green Corridors in Durban, which takes care of green spaces around the city.
Caroline Reid, a conservationist and ocean warrior, is the name of the award. She coordinated hundreds upon hundreds of beach and diving clean-ups and was integral in the 2017 Durban Harbour plastic pellet (nurdles), loss. Her networking skills also helped increase awareness of plastic pollution along the KwaZulu-Natal Coastline.
The award was presented by Green Corridors Coastal and Waste Management Projects officer Musawenkosi Shange to Siphiwe Rakgabale, founder of Tri-ecotours and coordinator of Green Corridors Litterboom.
Shange said that we would like to thankPlastics South for this recognition, as we continue the legacy of Caroline Reid.
We work in close collaboration with a number partners, including Adopt-a-River (WESSA), Umgeni Estuary Conservancy, Umgeni Estuary Conservancy, Umgeni Estuary Conservancy, DUCTs Amanzi Eyethu Nobuntu program, DUCTs Amanzi Eyethu Nobuntu Programme, DUCTs Solid Waste and Parks department, with the support of sponsors like PETCO and SAPRIPOL, he stated.
Rakgabale expressed hope that the work Green Corridors is doing to restore and clean riversways will create more natural spaces that allow people to connect with nature.
“We also hope this will improve the quality of life for people, said Rakgabale.
