Love Our Street 3185 & 3185 - Balaclava Community Clean

Quat Quatta Avenue had significant impact from plastic "ticker tape" possibly after an event. 

Glen Eira Road between Brighton and Orrong Roads had large and small chunks of polystyrene and lots of confectionery wrapper fragments.

Love Our Street 3183 & 3185 Community Clean 5 May 2019

A drizzly morning turned out beautiful to thank six volunteers who gave an hour this morning. Again, thousands of items of litter were prevented from entering Port Phillip Bay where creatures would be harmed by this toxic waste. Balaclava is much cleaner for your efforts.

Love Our Street 3183 & 3185 Ripponlea Village Clean

Happy New Year Ripponlea. With many people away, it was rather quiet in Ripponlea Village.

Still, our collection today included hundreds of small pieces of litter, including 350 cigarette butts. Butts are the single most littered item globally according to Blue Ocean. Small items of litter may seem insignificant. However, according to the Port Phillip Ecocentre’s research, microplastics make up 74% of the 828 million pieces of litter entering Port Phillip Bay annually. If we can keep our village clear of these things, we are playing our part.

Keep up the good work everyone, wherever you are over summer.
