Kouga Municipality encourages all residents to throw their weight behind the worldwide Elastic Cut Campaign.
It is as easy as one . . . two . . . three. Before throwing away a mask, cut the elastics to dispose of them properly.
This campaign follows after an overwhelming number of animals and birds had become entangled in the straps of masks.
