Bronte Seaside Scavenge

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!

For those of you salty crew that haven't heard of what we do, listen up.

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!

In the market for some sweet new threads? Hanging out to save some turtles? Or just needing a groove to some beachin’ beats?

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!

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: Wednesday, 29th November 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.

We've got the Banjo Paterson Inn on board to donate drink tokens, so participants will be able to exchange their litter for beer, wine and soda! We'll also have an abundance of pre-loved stuff on hand, a line-up of toe tapping musicians and a whole heap of local prizes...

Thanks to the support from Randwick Council, we're going to be set up in Dunningham Reserve from 2pm with racks upon racks of pre-loved threads and goods to be traded for the litter collected from the beach. Plastics are making their way into the marine environment at a rapid rate and we need to do something about it. The folk from Coogee Pavilion think so too... SO they've donated a 100 beer tokens that will also be up for grabs with your beach litter.

Sounds pretty good right? Well don't forget the amazing musicians we get along to keep us tapping our toes as we're sorting all this litter! We've got a VERY good line-up so don't miss it.
