Last Saturday, September 18th, Net Tech and Dive Friends Bonaire organized a clean up dive as part of the International Cleanup Day 2010 celebrations.

70 people participated to clean the reef around Karel’s Pier. Lots of rubbish was removed from underwater and brought to the shore: 1597 Glass Beverage Bottles, 55 Plastic Bottles, 102 Beverage Cans, 179 Cups-plates-forks-knives & Spoons, 30 Clothing or Shoes, 20 Fishing lines, 14 Wedding gifts, 8 Tires, a Chair and much more….Ramon and Joy from Stinapa where on the shore to sort out what was litter or not. The containers, sponsored by Selibon where almost full!

After this hard work the participants had a free drink at the Cappuccino bar on the pier.

At 5 pm the well known Barbecue started at Yellow Submarine. People brought plenty of side dishes and there was enough for everyone.

Pascal (Dive Friends Bonaire) and Jake (Nettech) handed out the Project AWARE certificates of recognition and 16 people were lucky enough to win a prize in the raffle.

It was a fantastic day, with a lot of people wanting the same thing: Make a difference!
