70 years of helping people to care for our ocean

Easter egg wrappers

By: Ann Kunz

It’s Easter Sunday which means amongst many other things, chocolates, chocolates and more chocolates.

Donatello, one of uShaka Sea World’s “Keep the Ocean Clean”” ambassadors, is reminding children that the only place their chocolate wrappers belongs is in the bin. If all South Africans (both young and not so young) work together this Easter and dispose of their chocolate wrappers responsibly, we can help reduce the amount of plastic ending up in the ocean.

It is not only wrappers left on the beaches that end up in the ocean, as most of the chocolate wrappers found in the sea are carried via storm water drains into rivers and eventually into the ocean.

Working together towards a litter free environment this Easter.
