With 5 trillion pieces of plastic floating in our oceans today & an estimated increase of 10 times that predicted by 2025, it's high time we picked up our act!
Thanks to the support of City of Cockburn we’ll be hosting the first Omeo Park Seaside Scavenge where you can clean-up your community & earn the funkiest of threads for it!
So let’s break that down:
1. Register at Omeo Park to receive a bag & glove
2. Head out & pick up all the trash you can from surrounding parks & streets
3. Come back to separate & sort your litter at the Sorting Station
4. Receive 1 Trash Token for every 10 pieces of litter you collect
5. Exchange these Trash Tokens in our pre-loved market
6. Lap up the live tunes, learn all the plastic-free tips & connect with local green groups
Sounds good huh?! You'll also be inspired to cut back on your single-use plastic consumption because if we're serious about reversing those prediction for 2025 (only 7 years away) we're going to need to do more than just clean-up the beach!
So come get amongst the action in November… We’re looking for volunteers, clothes & good donations & businesses to take the plastic-free pledge!
