Come down and do your bit for the environment and community you live in, along with help from local schools, volunteers and the Sea Scouts. It’s vitally important that we keep our oceans free from the everyday waste we throw away – especially plastic.
The problem with plastic, is that it lasts forever and doesn’t biodegrade, so it’s inside all the crabs and the creatures that live and feed in the mud, and in all the fish that feed on them, which means it ends up in us, too.
In the greater scheme of things, this may only be a small event, but every piece of plastic that’s prevented from entering the sea is stopped from entering our food chain, too.
So, put this date in your diary, grab your gumboots (and your family), and come and join us at this year’s Cox’s Bay Clean Up.
We want to see your kid's colouring skills! Click here to download a colouring competition and bring your coloured version along on the day to go in the draw to win a fishing rod.
