Rethink the Plastic Bag

SPAR Eastern Cape boldly launched an environmental initiative to urge customers to rethink the plastic bag in April this year.  Facing a massive challenge to change the consumer mindset, SPAR EC have researched and invested in initiatives to further decrease their environmental footprint.  Alan Stapleton will be discussing the feedback from the Stop the Use of Plastic Bags campaign, and will share future plans for collaboration to ensure the sustainability of this project.

Dylan Bailey - Bayworld Senior Curator & Ruth Wright – Bayworld Curator

Death by Plastic

Port Elizabeth’s sheltered bay is considered a hotspot for pollution and the concentration of plastics.  This is further aggravated by industry and urban areas being centered around the bay. Bayworld curators will discuss the devastating effects of plastic pollution on local marine life, and the grim future of our diverse aquatic ecosystems should human behavior not change. In conclusion, he will expand on current research being done using high resolution ocean models to track the movement of plastic in the ocean around Algoa bay.

Guests will be treated to a live animal demonstration by Lexi or Lucky, Bayworld’s performing resident seals.
