Well, what can I say about this mornings clean. Cold / raining /windy but still 12 hardcore volunteers turned out to help continue our push to rid our bay beaches foreshores of plastic / cig butts and general rubbish.

Considering this is still the quiet time of year, the amount of plastic and confectionary wrappers was horrendous.

Even though the storms and winds have been big this year. I really think mother nature’s been doing us a favor and pushing rubbish out of our bay a...nd on to our beaches, giving us a chance to clean it up. We just need to stop more plastic washing into the bay to stop the cycle.
