Looks can be Deceiving
 The beaches looked quite clean at first glance.  However with 30 volunteers turning out,  we soon found that the rubbish was not on the sand but at the waters edge or in the grasses and trees above the sand.

A big thanks to the 38 of you that turned up for Clean Up Australia Day at St Kilda South beach! It was great to welcome lots of new faces that joined us especially for Clean Up Australia Day.



We collected 128kg of litter, bringing our total for the year to 257kg, a massive haul!



It was great to have a bit of fun at the end performing for the St Kilda video that will be added to http://www.wearehappyfrom.com.

Bottle Litter is #1 on 3207Beaches
3207BeachPatrol had their Feb clean last weekend.  With 35 volunteers, we cleaned two of our beaches.   The most littered item was the discarded bottle, Coke bottles, water bottles (another Coke product), beer bottles and more.   These were in the shrubbery along side the beaches.  People must think this is a dumping ground.  Approx 50 bottles were removed from 200 m of trees.
