Love Our Street 3183 & 3185 Individual cleans April 2020
Though group cleans are suspended during COVID-19, members continue their efforts to protect our environment. Numerous reports have been logged using the Litter Stopper app. Recent rains mean litter has heavily impacted our beaches, so our work to remove this menace from our streets means less flows through the storm water system to the sea. Thank you to our members.

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.

LOS 3184 Elwood Community Clean Feb 1st 2020

In a window of opportunity between yesterday's dusty scorcher and the welcome rain today, 10 volunteers helped out our neighbourhood. Not everyone's in the photo: a couple phoned in what they'd achieved in their own street today - the spirit of our group in action.

624 cigarette butts (almost double the same time last year at this location). There were lots of food and confectionery wrappers and other soft plastics too, These items need to be on the list to be replaced with non-plastic alternatives.
