LOS 3185 Ripponlea

Love Our Street 3185 Ripponlea, City of Port Phillip

Ripponlea Village and neighbourhood: a lovely location to live, work and shop. The on-going tide of litter though causes considerable concern to locals in the area

Love Our Street brings together members of the community who care about their patch and the wider environment.

An hour of action, once a month cleans up the streets, prevents litter entering storm water drains and thus protects Port Phillip Bay’s marine environment and beaches and sends a message that we don’t want our community trashed.

Come along and join like-minded people in taking community action against litter. Stay for a catch up in a local café.

Love Our Street 3183 & 3185 Clean Up Australia Day - Balaclava by 3184-1@loveourstreet.com.au

Despite it being very hot and windy, 14 volunteers put in to make Balaclava cleaner than it’s been for years. It was great to see familiar faces and to welcome new members.

LOS 3185 & 3183 Ripponlea Feb 2019 by 3185@loveourstreet.com.au

Seven volunteers collected over 2 kilograms of litter: mostly small fragments that become very mobile in wind or rain events. As ever, cigarette butts were the most common item: 950 collected today.

Love Our Street 3183 & 3185 Ripponlea Village Clean by 3184-1@loveourstreet.com.au

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.
