We’re very stoked to announce that our Pint for a Purpose for the month of February and March 2023 will be Protect the West Coast. Mining companies are constantly threatening the natural West Coast environment and without Protect the West Coast, our incredible landscapes would be destroyed without most of us even knowing about it.
So for the months of February and March, when you order a pint from our Pint for a Purpose tap at Jack Black’s Taproom, proceeds will go towards the super important work that they are doing to help save our coastline.
Protect the West Coast (PTWC) comprises a collective of concerned South Africans (including scientists, journalists, activists and media experts) who work for a not-for-profit organisation to ensure that mining on the West Coast of South Africa is conducted with the correct and proper oversight in accordance with fundamental principles of the law.
Due to an avalanche of applications to mine and prospect for oil and gas, diamonds and heavy mineral sands that have been hastily granted ad hoc by the Department of Mineral Resources and Energy, PTWC is fighting an urgent battle to force a moratorium on all prospecting and mining on the West Coast until an all-in-one Strategic Environmental Assessment is completed.
It’s intense work and PTWC needs all the support that it can get in order to protect our precious coastline. Watch the film here to learn more about Protect the West Coast.
For more information and to donate to this incredible cause, visit the Protect the West Coast Website or donate via Snapscan below. And we’ll see you down at the Taproom for a pint in support this essential cause.
