Sunset Beach, Western Cape

As part of 350.org's Climate Impacts Day - a global day of action which took place on 5 May 2012 - a small group of us created dots with pebbles on Sunset Beach, Milnerton, after doing a beach cleanup. The overall aim by 350 for the day was to issue a wake-up call, and connect the dots between climate change and extreme weather. To educate, protest, create, document, and volunteer along with thousands of people around the world.

On some beaches the amount of plastic outnumbers the amount of rocks and shells. Sunset Beach is part of the Cape West Coast, and the impact of pollution was our focus as we created our dots after doing a beach cleanup.
