Jawili solo clean
Length of beach covered ~ 100m
Sacks collected – 2.5
Volunteers – Me myself and I
Main items collected – Shoes, shoes, shoes
After the tourism students left I went out and did my own clean up targeting mainly a whole pile of shoes. Shoes and clothing waste is a big global problem and I look forward to seeing more recycling companies offering viable solutions so that value is created in old shoes and therefore it can be removed from the beaches. If anyone wants to start a business in this area in the Philippines then please go for it and let me know what you’re up to so I can support it!
