After recent heavy rain and strong winds, we knew we were in for a big task as 12 of us set out to clean up between Kannanook Creek, Frankston, and Palm Court, Long Island.
Upon arrival, our estimates were confirmed with most of the washed up litter comprising of plastic straws, small to micro plastics including broken plastics, bottle tops and the like, and plastic wrapping such as confectionary and potato chip wrappers.
In total, 25.5Kgs was collected meaning there is 1/40th of a tonne less likely to impact on our marine environment, so a job well done to all involved on a highly commendable effort.
We'd also like to thank our sponsors and supporters,
Frankston City Council,
Bunnings Warehouse, Frankston,
Fit Body Fit Mind,
The Dharma Hub,
Snap Print, Frankston,
Peninsula Camera Centre,
Mic Mac's Oriental Grocer,
Foot Street Newsagency,
ithouti they assistance, our volunteers could not achieve the success they do in removing the litter and raising awareness amongst our broader community, so thank you once again.
