Spring Into Scavenge at the Teignmouth Community and Arts Centre this September. Seaside Scavenge is a beach clean and clothes swap event with live music where the litter collected is exchanged for our trash currency that can be spent in the pre loved market stalls.
We’re heading over Bronte way with our trash for treasure market as part of @Waverly Councils Summerama!!
How does it work? For every 10 pieces of litter you collect you can earn yourself a Trash Token to spend on some pre-loved goodies, which is great news considering that a whopping 6000kg of textiles end up in landfill in Australia every 10 minutes.
By buying second-hand not only are you getting some unique threads your helping keep our environment a little happier.
If you have any quality pre-loved goods, feel like helping out for the day or are a local business willing to take the plastic-free pledge and help fight the tide of plastic pollution, then please hit us up.
Head to the link to register and keep up to date with all the good stuff coming your way!
Join us at Rye Pier for the fourth Seaside Scavenge beach clean and trade the trash you collect for coffees, food and stylish second hand clothes!
This is a community run event supported by Coastcare Victoria and Mornington Peninsula Shire to raise awareness of plastic pollution, connect like-minded people and help motivate our community towards reducing our disposable plastic footprint on Port Phillip Bay.
There will be increcible prizes from local businesses to be won, such as a double pass dolphin and seal swim, talks on plastic pollution from local NGOs, plus workshops on how to upcycling everyday waste into useful items.
Plus the Bandwagon will be hosting a stage for local bands, helping to set the seaside feel and get us into the beach cleaning spirit.
Join us to clean the beach and be part of Rye's inspiring summer festival!

The Scavenge is about putting a value on litter!
So come down, clean-up your community and trade the trash you collect (once sorted/catalogued) for the funkiest of pre-loved threads, books and more in our pop-up market.
Thanks to the support of City of Busselton There'll be live tunes from local musos to lap up, conversations with local green groups to be had & all round change making action to get in on.
With 63 billion gallons of oil used annually in the US to produce plastic bottles, there's more to the plastic pollution issue than just cleaning up.
So get ready to do more than just recycle, it's time to give single-use plastic the boot, start purchasing quality made garments over cheap synthetic ones and all round become a conscious participant on this planet.
We’re looking for volunteers, clothes & good donations & businesses to take the plastic-free pledge!

On the 10th of November, we'll be launching the first Seaside Scavenge West Coast Chapter... So what?
Basically, the opportunity to clean-up your beautiful coastline and trade the trash you collect for the funkiest of pre-loved threads donated by the local community and maybe even a sneaky beer if you're lucky!
With 7.2 billion butts littered annually in Oz, we've got some work to do shaping the way Aussies think about litter and helping those incredible creatures of the sea.
Buut we know trash doesn't get everyone going, that's why we'll have a line-up of local musos to keep the good vibes flowing alongside local green groups and plastic-free advocates.
So, you know what to do - 1) put it in the diary 2) spread the word 3) get in touch if you want to help out 4) donate any quality second-hand stuff you no longer use!
