Twee avonturiers, Michael Baretta en Camilla Howard, het in Oktober verlede jaar 'n 7-maande staptog oor 'n afstand van 3,000km aangepak, wat hulle onlangs voltooi het. Hulle het by Alexanderbaai in die Noord-Kaap begin en kuslangs tot by Kosibaai in KwaZulu-Natal, op die Mosambiekse grens, gestap. Onder andere het hulle sowat 15 skole besoek waar leerders en die gemeenskap bewus gemaak is van die belangrikheid van omgewingsbewaring, asook die gevare van onnodige rommelstrooiing.

Ses gemeenskapsprojekte vir die skoon-maak van strande is ook deur hulle van stapel gestuur en in die proses is daar van sowat 7,155kg vullis ontslae geraak. Die twee het sowat 20-40 kilometer per dag gestap, 6 dae per week. Michael en Camilla beplan om voort te bou op hulle staptog deur 'n bydrae landswyd te lewer tot die vermindering van onnodige rommelstrooiing. "CAN DO! Trekking for Trash, is sponsored by Nampak Bevcan, Nampak DivFood and Collect-a-Can under the CAN DO! umbrella. CAN DO! Trekking for Trash is a non-profit organization, with the aim of raising awareness, educating and inspiring change about the challenge of recyclable waste plaguing South Africa. Through a 3,000km walk across the country, CAN DO! Trekking for Trash aims to promote a cleaner South Africa by conducting beach clean ups and inviting ordinary South Africans to participate in the project. Funds raised will go towards environmental education in South Africa and individuals and corporates are encouraged to pledge their support."
