Supertubes penguins collect tons of rubbish

One cannot miss the Supertubes Surfing Foundation’s penguins when driving down da Gama Road in Jeffreys Bay.

They have become a feature in the Supertubes Park and play an intergral part of the town’s recycling efforts.

The Recycling Penguins swallowed 9 619 kg of material for the month of January 2016 alone.

That is all waste that gets saved from going to the landfill site.

“Well done and thanks to everyone for their efforts with recycling and special thanks to Enviroman for their awesome work they have been doing. Lets keep it up and improve from here on forward,”said the Foundation on their facebook page.

The Supertubes Foundation was established in 1999 to look after the Park and last remaining sand dunes along the beach between Supertubes and the Point.

They also rescue indigenous plants, like aloes, from building sites and have picked up tons of glass and other rubbish from the beach since they started their operation.
