21 Days for the Ocean campaign

21 Days for the Ocean campaign

Gansbaai Courant

As  part  of  their  21  Days for the Ocean campaign, White Shark Projects initiated a competition where they asked the learners of Okkie Smuts Primary School in Stanford, to collect as many 2l plastic bottles as they can.

The learners were inspired with a chance to win a shark cage dive for two. White Shark Projects were inundated with bottles. The ultimate winner was Asana Miles who collected 249 bottles. White Shark Projects were so impressed with the effort that they decided to invite the runner up, Nushaan Cornelius with 102 bottles, to join them on a shark cage dive too.

The plastic bottles will be used in the “We build Zwehile” campaign, where they use the plastic bottles to build houses. They need 3,500 bottles to build one house. Now they still need donations of cement, doors and windows. Okkie Smuts pupils, we thank you for your hard work!
