Beach Clean-Up

A HUGE thank you to everyone who came to the beach clean up with Magnific Rubbish Club on Tuesday!! We had over 9 people and 7 full bags of garbage collected… and some delicious smoothies afterwards.

As we were walking down the beach, one of the volunteers said, “There is no garbage on the beach… what will we do?”

As the picture shows, we had to remove the outer layer of driftwood to reveal the trash buried underneath.  Even though the garbage doesn’t seem obvious at first, it is there, and with an awesome team we are able to prevent it from entering back into the ocean.  Every straw you see and pick up helps the world.

It was such a pleasure to meet people in the area - some on holidays and some living here.

We look forward to collecting more with you all and saving the world - one hidden straw at a time!

We were lucky enough to even have our own photographer, thanks Marco @marcosurf for the awesome shots and encouragement :)
