On the 8th of September, Ecoglen along with the other Friends of the Moreleta groups played host to SOAPKidz, a non-profit organisation whose aim is  “to create environmental awareness, promote nature conservation, teach life skills, while doing fun activities amongst the underprivileged, abused and neglected children.” 150 SOAPKidz  hiked 10 kilometres from the Pick n’ Pay Faerie Glen to the Pioneer Museum in Silverton.  Picking up litter, removing alien, invasive plant species, planting new trees as well as completing various tasks for prizes but most of all having fun while learning about the environment and conservation. The day was a great success with 279 bags of litter being removed from the spruit along the 10 kilometres of the hike, roughly 2 bags per child. Click on their  logo to vist the SOAPKidz website.
