Happy New Year Ripponlea. With many people away, it was rather quiet in Ripponlea Village.
Still, our collection today included hundreds of small pieces of litter, including 350 cigarette butts. Butts are the single most littered item globally according to Blue Ocean. Small items of litter may seem insignificant. However, according to the Port Phillip Ecocentre’s research, microplastics make up 74% of the 828 million pieces of litter entering Port Phillip Bay annually. If we can keep our village clear of these things, we are playing our part.
Keep up the good work everyone, wherever you are over summer.
