LOS 3184 Elwood Street

LOS 3184 Elwood

Our volunteers help look after our local neighbourhood streets to stop litter getting to the bay.  LOS3184 conducts a clean along one of its streets every month.

The distinctive LOS tee shirts of the volunteers make for a colourful addition to the streets once a month on Saturday mornings.

Mad on this rainy morning? Well, seven of us were able to come along to Elwood shops (Glenhuntly Road) and nearby.
At least over 5 kg of litter didn't end up in the ocean: 600+ cigarette butts, 23 drink containers that should be returned if Victoria had a Container Deposit Scheme, lots of confectionery wrappers, lollipop sticks and Slurpee straws/straw packaging.
The heaviest rain help off till coffee time. πŸ§πŸ§πŸ’šπŸ’š Thanks everyone.

LOS 3184 Elwood Street Clean - Our Fourth Birthday by 3184-1@loveourstreet.com.au

You might think we just got together yesterday to eat birthday cake.

Well we also collected 13 kg of litter from Elwood Village and nearby streets: 1795 cigarette butts (plastic) and lots of serviettes, confectionery wrappers and small bits of plastic, These will now not be blown or washed into Port Phillip Bay.

Since starting the first Love Our Street group, in Elwood four years ago, the group has collected 530 kg of litter - from the streets of Elwood, a suburb that takes pride in its special character. We would love not to do this at all, but we know every little piece of litter on the streets has the potential to harm wildlife on land or in the sea.

LOS 3184 has shown the way for other "off-beach" Beach Patrol groups. There are now 15 other Love Our Street groups in Melbourne and one at Cape Woolamai: 16 babies in 4 years is some growth in numbers. Still more are in various stages of planning.

Thanks to all our wonderful members who come along when they can to take practical action to improve our local and wider environment.
