Summer beach clean up at Poleg beach

Sunset on the Mediterranean shoreline provided the perfect backdrop to Telfed’s first beach clean-up. SA Olah, Judith Turiel, has become actively involved in environmental awareness and was eager to share her knowledge and passion with the community. “Armed with reusable gloves and bin bags, kindly provided by the Environmental Protection Office of the Netanya Municipality, we tackled the beach. Participants were astounded by the range of litter we picked up. It was an eye opener for all,” said Judith.

Judith began volunteering with Netanyam two years ago and her active interest in protecting the environment, and particiularly the oceans, has grown over the years. "As more people now know, plastic is a huge problem and finding ways to reduce its use has become my passion. So imagine how delighted I was to get a call from Telfed asking me to arrange a beach clean up! We met at Poleg beach around sunset on a Thursday evening this summer and kicked off with a slide show explaining how we can reduce single-use plastic in our lives," said Judith.

New Olim, Glenn and Rhonda Lazarus, who joined in the beach clean up added that they learned a great deal from Judith's "insightful lecture on the environment and the dangers of pollution on our  oceans. Meeting new people, making new friends, fun and delicious watermelon were all part of the fun... and we all made a difference to our environment."

Inquisitive beach-goers cheered on the participants and were motivated to lend a hand. Thank you and kol hakavod to everyone who took part in this event!
