Beach Clean-Up Campaign
A COVID-19 Update
We have some good news to share, our monthly beach cleanups in Kenya that began in May 2019 and to be put on hold during the Covid pandemic have started back up again!

The Aspiga Beach Clean-Up Campaign started in May 2019, after Lucy visited the beaches of Kenya
and was horrified at the amount of plastic pollution. We pledged to clean up a basket of plastic for every pair of Kenyan Sandals
we sold between the months of May and July 2019. We were so overwhelmed with the response and support from all of our
lovely customers that we made the decision to carry on with our campaign going forward and do our bit in saving our oceans.
Every month, we complete a beach clean up with Mike, our sandal supplier who brings along 12 children whose parents were
finding it difficult to pay for school fees and got turned away on a daily basis.
The children were so happy and excited to join us as they were finally able to be a part of something after getting turned away from school. In return for them helping us do the monthly beach clean up, we now pay for each of their school fees for the entire year, ensuring they are able to go to school and get a valuable education.
The children are enjoying being part of the Aspiga clean up team and Aspiga is so happy to be helping support them with their education.We are proud to have won the Cabana and Capsule’s Beach Clean Up Competition in October 2019, for our dedication to protect and preserve our oceans and beaches.
