Banaban school on Rabi Island Fiji where the kids commit to 20 minutes plastics pick up each week this was their first effort. This initiative is is part of the Plastic Free Oceans - Sustainable Social direct projects.
We had a successful clean-up last Thursday morning at Corrimal, a small but dedicated group collected the usual type of rubbish as well as various chairs, a couple of shopping trolleys and a sofa. One of the trolleys was embedded in creek mud but a team effort, including a tow rope attached to Cliff’s car, managed to retrieve the trolley without damage to vehicle or people.
7 hardy souls collected 5 bags of rubbish plus other non-baggable items. Good news is: The Surf Club has installed 2 security cameras to act as a deterrent. Bad news is: It probably doesn’t cover the area up near the Holy Spirit College. Wonderful coffee and camaraderie enjoyed by all!
On Halloween, Sunday 31st October, we are joining members of Sydney Cove Rotary club for a fun and fundraising evening. 5 short films, movie trivia and prizes to be won – all for a good cause!
Your ticket(s) (zoom link) cost $24.99pp which will go to providing Christmas hampers for members of our community.

This is crazy - 3/4 filled this bin yesterday with plastic beads from the gutter between our house and the coffee shop half a block away and the ocean is only 400m down the road. Yes, yes I should have taken some photos yesterday day :-(
Paste a link to the image or video (from Facebook, You Tube or elsewhere) - it will display in the feed. Easy. As a charity, the resources to fund the huge storage needed to stream videos are out of our reach - let's hope a major donor comes along and funds that for us!
