Kingborough Alliance: Reducing
waste in the marine and coastal environment
Members of SLiK have been busy cleaning up the coast line from Kingston Beach to Woodbridge since this project started in March 2014. Along the way they have collected heaps of rubbish and have been documenting the types of items they have been finding - loads of cigarette butts, plastic wrap from straws (plus plastic straws), wrappers, cans, bottles, plastic cups, wipes and dog poo bags (filled and unfilled).
SLiK will then monitor and analyse the types
of waste collected and then provide information back in a way that will raise awareness about waste and motivate
behaviour change resulting in reduced waste, threat to species in the coastal
environment, and increased community engagement in its ongoing care. The
project will cover the coastal area
Come along to Love Living Locally on Sunday 15 March at the Kingborough Civic Centre and meet Marina Debria, children's art and crafts activities and heaps more information.
