The Scavenger Hunt

The Scavenger Hunt

We're hosting a corporate fundraiser event for businesses to submit a team of 4-6 staff to take part in The Scavenger Hunt. This is an opportunity for employees to engage with tasks and activities that improve knowledge and action on waste separation, energy efficiency and plastic reduction in the workplace.

Location: Coogee Beach + Coogee Pavilion
Time: 1pm - 5pm
Date: Friday, 20th October 2017
Cost: $700 (discounts available for smaller businesses)

The funds raised will go towards ensuring the longevity and success of Seaside Scavenge events by contributing to a new van or trailer to move our event and materials around Australia. As we are a travelling charity our mode of transport is crucial! We have found that interested businesses will either pay directly to submit a team as a donation for an educational and team building training day. Otherwise, teams can fundraise the amount. We can provide more information on how to fundraise.

Please see the attached brochure for more information.

Maroubra Seaside Scavenge

Maroubra Seaside Scavenge

It's about time we made our way down to Maroubra to clean-up the shoreline and the spectacular headlands! Thanks to Randwick City Council we'll be kicking the first weekend of summer off with the best kind of Scavenging action... The kind where you get to lap up local tunes, get rewarded for the litter you collected with the funkiest of pre-loved goods and if you really put your hear and soul into it, you might even land yourself a prize from wicked local businesses.

We're in the beginning stages of planning this one, so stay tuned for more deets!

Port Macquarie Seaside Scavenge

We're very happy to be rolling our way back into Port for the second year running! With the support of Taronga Zoo and Port Macquarie Hastings Council we'll be setting up a Port Macquarie Seaside Scavenge Chapter so that there can be regular Scavenging action around town. We've got support from a whole heap of local businesses, awesome local green groups like Boomerang Bags and Coastal Warriors and tantalising musicians to get us tapping our toes.

Manly Seaside Scavenge

Manly Seaside Scavenge

As part of Manly Ocean Care Day we'll be running a Scavenge pop-up market to clean-up Manly and the surround area. Come down and check out the incredible list of organisations working to combat marine debris pollution. It's truly an inspiring day to see the collective dedication of organisations across Sydney and Australia working together to clean-up our oceans.

We'll have the usual spread of funky, thrifty goods for all ages. There will also be a line-up of marine debris talks, plastic-free living tips and tricks and lively local musos to keep the spirits high! We're hoping for a splendid day in the sun... come down and check it out. We'll keep you posted with more info through our Facebook page.

Seaside Scavenge Festival Rye Pier

Seaside Scavenge Festival Rye Pier

For the third year running the crew down in Rye Pier, Mornington Peninsula will be hosting the Seaside Scavenge Festival. A full day of festivities from beach cleaning to Trashy art competitions. There will be a spread of local marine organisations attending who will get you up to speed with whats happening in our oceans, what we can do to help and most importantly how to have a blast while we clean it up!

At the last event in January these guys removed over 600kg of trash from the stretch of beach at Rye. We're hoping that this year there won't be quite as much! But with Christmas and New Years just weeks before hand we suspect we'll need every set of hands around to get this stuff before it reaches the shoreline!

If you're interested in getting involved, donating your pre-loved stuff or anything in between please get in touch via the contact page. 

St Kilda Seaside Scavenge Festival

We'll be bringing the Scavenge vibes south in November. We want our debut in Melbourne to go out with a bang so we're bringing it big time with a bountiful collaboration with The Bay Keepers, Beach Patrol, Sea Shepard Marine Debris Crew, Scab Duty and all the other conscientious folks we can round up!

The day is going to be filled with sweet tunes, an enormous amount of scavenging action, loads of cafés going plastic-free for the day and a heap of funky goods to be scored. 

If you've got ideas, people, businesses or anything else to get us on our way then please get in touch. Or if you just want to find out more head to the Facebook page.

Coogee Seaside Scavenge

Coogee Seaside Scavenge

It's our local stomping ground... So it's an absolute pleasure that Randwick City Council is having us back for the 3rd year running! As usually the legends over at the Coogee Pavilion are on board to reward you hard working Scavengers with a well earnt beverage. We'll have a spread of funky pre-loved stuff for you to chose from as well as a list of local legends to hear from! 

Hopefully you know the drill but if not come along and you'll slide right in! We'll have some more deets coming your way SOON!
