We finally had the weather on our side for our April clean up.
31 enthusiastic volunteers turned out to help clean up what could only be described as a “Sea of Plastic” washed up after last weeks winds. Several klms of sea weed littered with 1000’s of pieces of small soft and hard plastics as well as hundreds more noodles under the seaweed, I was shocked to see what must be sitting on the bottom of our bay.
