Parkdale's February Clean up brought out our biggest crew. We were blown away by 45 people contributing their precious weekend time to help remove 17.3kg of rubbish off Parkdale Beach. A big welcome to all the new volunteers.
Our limits were pushed in providing kid sized gloves as families supported their children to help send the message that individual and local changes can make a difference! In many instances it's the kids who are requesting to join which is really inspiring and confidence building about our next generation. Bring on our March clean up.
