Pre-Christmas Beach Patrol

Just days before Christmas, these wonderful people came down to South Melbourne Beach to volunteer their time and clean the beach.

We found so much plastic and - my greatest nemesis - lots of tops from tiny fish-shaped soy sauce bottles.

Here's your New Year's pledge, Melbourne: quit the door sauce bottles!

See you all next year!

A rainy February beach clean

Our last 3205 Beach Patrol South Melbourne beach cleanup was a great success!

 

The weather definitely did not coorporate: the rain fell horizontally. The sun didn't help: clouds blocked its warming rays. The wind wasn't partnering: it blew in our faces.

 

But 12 hardly souls came down to clean the beach, and we're all looking forward to next month!

A nice March morning to be down at the beach at Mentone.
There was a fair amount of seaweed washed ashore which also meant there was a lot of plastic pieces mixed in with it. The good thing is we are helping to create an awareness about the plastic problem we as a community have created by logging our rubbish data counts. This month we had 6 volunteers who picked up 7 bags of rubbish weighing 16.4 kgs indluding 9 bottles and cans, thanks Paul.

LOS 3184 Elwood Clean Up Australia Day

We kept to our usual first Saturday of the month to hold our registered Clean Up Australia Day event. It's a long weekend, so it was great to see some of our regulars could make it and it meant a couple of new members could join us in a break from usual commitments.

Our volunteer time raised $250 in credits for the Ecocentre’s Living Waters projects to improve water in the catchment of Elster Creek. 

 

Compared to the same time and location last year, the same number of volunteers collected under half the volume and under half the number of drink containers. Cause for hope?

 

Sadly, about the same number of cigarette butts.
