"The ocean cannot clean itself. Only human can do that." Thinking critically about how plastics and others are deteriorating the ocean, beaches and the sea creatures, We are more than compelled to act in a way to save the ocean because health to the ocean means health to us.
Net Impact Action at Home Ghana is a youth group that brings stimulating events that challenge young people to act on social and environmental issues in Accra and other parts of Ghana.
To help curb this ever-growing ocean pandemic, the group would like to organise beach clean-up projects across Accra. The first of this exercises taking place at the Next Door Beach Accra.
The group believes that Action speaks louder than words and that every little step can lead to a change and save the ocean.
The aim of this project is to clean-up beaches, create awareness about how plastics and other litters are causing harm to the ocean, sea creatures and the health of human. We also seek to share some creative ideas in which plastics could be re-used, reduced, and recycled.
On the event day, we will
Do a clean-up around the beach
