It’s great to be a part of the Clean Oceans ‘Turn The Tide On Plastic’ campaign.
They’re supplying every nipper with a long lasting stainless-steel reusable drinking bottle and filtered water refill stations at every surf lifesaving club – with a goal for all plastics to be banned on beaches with a Surf Life Saving club by 2020!
Clean Oceans is committed to ‘Turning The Tide on Plastics’. They’re dedicated to stopping plastics entering our oceans and waterways, with a goal of banning all single use plastics on every Australian beach by 2020!
The Ugly Facts
The fact is, the facts are ugly. With an estimated 15,000 plastic bottles thrown away every minute in Australia alone, 5000 PET bottles thrown away every second globally and less than 4% of these being recycled. Most end up in landfill, being burned or in our oceans. Something has to be done to keep our oceans clean for future generations.
Clean Oceans will be working with a variety of partners to achieve this goal, our first stage involves a huge activation with Surf Life Clubs around Australia. We will be getting down and dirty with cost effective and easy solutions to all surf lifesaving clubs and Nippers programs around Australia to kick plastic off our beaches once and for All.
Each Nipper will be gifted with their own stainless steel water bottle, and we will also be supplying clubs with recycling and waste bins, and portable refilling water stations. We are all about re-education, we’ve created an educational program, that can be presented by our Clean Oceans team, on the importance of a plastic free planet, with an aim to encourage everyone to reduce and recycle and create an environment for community awareness.
