initiative and promote a litter-free Durban,” said Gopi.
She said the two essential items to carry are a recyclable bag and a pair of gloves.
Fitness guru Phindi Gule said an hour-long plog a week could have a significant impact on the environment.
Gule and her husband carry a reusable bag every time they plog.
Gule found it sad that people littered because they have the perception there will be people cleaning after them.
“Change starts with the individual. Plastic remains an issue and if it goes into the ocean, it causes severe damage to marine life.
“Therefore small actions like throwing away or picking up litter can go a long way in fixing the environment,” she said.
Gule encouraged people to start plogging groups in their own areas.
