3198 Feb clean
Thank you to everyone for coming to our clean this morning! What a great way to start a Sunday with beautiful people on our gorgeous beach. With 12 Volunteers we collected 4.5kg of rubbish, a big difference from our 35kg last month. Interesting to note that the area we were cleaning today had bins, maybe that helps to explain the difference in rubbish collected. It was also very apparent that the half of the beach with bins had significantly less rubbish than the area of beach with bins. Another large amout of cigarette butts collected and the majority of rubbish was small pieces of plastic

Thanks to everyone who helped clean the Hampton dog beach at the end of January.  Not a lot of big stuff, but lots of small plastics and wrappers.  Not a big weight haul, but that doesn't always reflect the litter we find.  Enjoyed a coffee together at the SHQ cafe.  Next clean up delayed by 1 week for Clean Up Australia Day-Sunday 6 March.

3199 February Clean Up

It was good to be able to hand out a few more 3199 Frankston Beach Patrol T-Shirts thanks to Frankston City Council who funded them on Saturday.

The weather was kind to us although the wind had a bit of chill to it at times. Nonetheless, 16 people joined in removing another 14Kgs of litter from a 1Km stretch of beach. After that, a small group gathered at The Dharma Hub on Nepean Highway for refreshments.

Nurdles were the biggest problem once again here. No matter where you look, they are everywhere. It's the highest concentration I know of along the areas we cover.
Next were cigarette butts. Again, another big problem everywhere.
Lastly, microplastics. Often hard to see, I managed to find some and compare them next to some nurdles as seen in the image.

 

A big thank you to all who made it and I'm sure you'll agree with me, it was another fun and rewarding day.

 

Don't forget, March 6, we have our big clean up for Clean Up Australia Day. If you haven't registered for the event, please do so by clicking here. All the details are there.
