Not the best day to be outdoors but we had a purpose so out we went.

There were 5 of us and we collected 14 bags of rubbish weighing 39.6 kgs.

You'd think we'd be struggling to find bottles and cans after more than a year of collecting

but this month we still found 112.

Albert Park Secondary School In Port Melbourne

This morning we had 9 students from Albert Park College.  We gave them a presentation in their class room about plastic litter.   We enacted a demonstration on the wastefulness of making a disposable plastic spoon. Then we went out a did a beach audit of the litter on the First Point Beach in Port Melbourne.  We separated into three groups and each group cleaned and audited a certain section.

The students picked up 571 items of plastic.

Elwood's June clean up took place on a chilly morning.  That didn't deter twelve of our most dedicated volunteers from turning up.  Together they cleaned up 22kg of litter off the beach. This was a huge effort for a small group. Our beach and our bay is a better place for it!

Parkdale June '16 CleanUp
Wow! What a difference a month makes.  I am grateful to the beach patrol faithful for listening to my call to action.  Today we had 23 volunteers! In beautiful mild winter conditions we collected 30 kg's of rubbish.

 

Find of the month was a vacuum cleaner and a monster brush head. Feeling invigorated and looking forward to our July session.

3199 - 1 year on, still going strong!

Today saw the first clean up for our second year as 3199 Frankston Beach Patrol and what a success our first year was with over 250 hours spent removing over a quarter of a tonne of litter from Frankston's beach.
Our clean up today was equally as successful with 23 volunteers removing another 38Kgs of litter from Long Island Beach, Frankston. We were even lucky enough to have Liberal Candidate for Dunkley, Chris Crewther, come along and give a bit of his time to help out and see first hand why we desperately need such things as a Container Deposit Scheme in Victoria. 
In all, the day was great, the weather was again kind and our team of dedicated volunteers did a fantastic job as always. Unfortunately, we didn't get a group shot this week as I was busy filming for another little 3199FBP side project I'm working on, which you will see in due course.
Lastly, thank you to everyone who made it today, our sponsors and supporter: Frankston City Council, Bunnings Frankston, Fit Body Fit Mind, The Dharma Hub, Section G12, Cignall Frankston, Peninsula Surf Centre, Snap Printing Frankston, Peninsula Camera Centre, Mic Macs Asian Grocer and Foot Street Newsagency, and the people who retweet our tweets and share our Facebook posts - without you all, we could not do the work we do, spread our message and promote a sustainable environment. Thanks you.
*** Don't forget our next clean, July 16, 10am, at Oliver's Hill!
