PEC brings The Litterboom Project to Cape Town
90% of marine plastic pollution comes from river systems. The Litterboom Project (TLP) has been successfully removing 700kg – 1 ton of plastic from 5 KZN river systems each day since 2017. Litterbooms are highly effective floating booms that catch most plastic from a river, which is then removed by trained teams and sorted on site. Pristine Earth Collective partnered with TLP in early 2020 to bring their successful model to Cape Town.
