Elsternwick Park Love Our Street (EPLOS) 3186 January 2020

In the face of catastrophic devastation in so many parts of Australia, the importance of caring for our creatures by keeping our own environment clean is underscored.Members will be doing other things as they are able.

Several new members joined in our January clean. Our volunteer time raised $300 in credits for the Ecocentre’s Living Waters projects to improve water in the catchment of Elster Creek.

We removed 16 kg of litter from the reserve: much of it soft plastic fragments and take-away food litter.

We hope the young wildlife are better able to thrive now.

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.
