Everyone, young and old pitched in and helped clean up the beach – collecting 40 plastic bags of plastic we're glad our beautiful ocean is now free of! 
There were some #Suzuki goodies bags and CrownNationalSA spice hampers for those who cleared the most plastic.

 Bayview Boating had a Gazebo set up at the beach braai area at Bruce's and provided bags and waters for the volunteers who cleared the rocks and trails of all litter, gut and any other items that do not belong. 

This dealer has also placed garbage cans around the perimeter of his dealership with Suzuki Clean Ocean Logo on it to create awareness with the people passing the road.

Tait Marine 

The Suzuki Marine Dealer in Knysna took the initiative to clean up abandoned train tracks for World Ocean Day. 

Knysna is a coastal town with a beautiful lagoon but even rubbish from inland makes its way to the ocean. The team of Tait Marine got involved with Revive Knysna NGO and got a lot of weeds and rubbish removed from the abandoned train tracks.

Suzuki Marine South Africa would like to thank all dealers that participated in this event and also encourage everyone that were unable to participate or be part of the campaign to join in the next campaign that will take place in September. 

This was the first World Campaign for the year 2023 and we have a very strong feeling that the next campaigns will be a huge success as the environment is very important to Suzuki Marine South Africa. This good initiative makes us proud and we will do our best to extend Clean Ocean awareness to our customers and community.
