Deli to Sea
Ocean Awareness Run
A powerful collaboration between many ocean-minded individuals, all of them very much in line with The Good Machine's spirit.
"Between Shell setting out to blast the Wild Coast, mass seal deaths in the Cape, and mining continuing along the West Coast, the ocean has been subjected to more than it can bare.
Fortunately, the beautiful Cape Town community has managed to shed a bit of light on a truly dull reality. This weekend passed, more than 300 Capetonians participated in an ocean awareness event to encourage waste reduction and ocean conservation."

After Professor Peter Ryan, advisor to the The Beach Co-Op, and his team found 418 coffee cup lids, amongst other plastic, in 23 cleanups near Dalebrook tidal pool!
The Dalebrook tidal pool, now a hotspot for plastic pollution as it is a favourite spot for people to gather We knew we had to do something about this!
We decided this was an opportunity for us to show how beautifully people and organisations can work together for a common purpose!
In collaboration with Dalebrook Cafe, we decided to plan an event for plastic and ocean awareness: a run from Chardonnay Deli, in Constantia, to Dalebrook Cafe in Kalk Bay. The run ended at the Dalebrook tidal pool where we had activations from the Save Our Seas Foundation Shark Education Centre and a beach clean-up by The Beach Co-Op.
