Two Oceans Aquarium tackling plastic pollution

# The Two Oceans Aquarium will embark on a Trash Bash campaign at Hout Bay Beach in Cape Town tomorrow. This initiative is aimed at reducing ocean pollution by cleaning up plastic and debris. Trash Bash uses the Dirty Dozen methodology, which focuses on the 12 items often found littering the city’s beaches. These collected items, such as plastic bags, bottles, straws and sweet wrappers, are recorded to provide data to citizen science projects on the sources and impacts of plastics in the ocean.
