CUAD 2019 in partnership with Positive Change for Marine Life!

Clean up Australia Day 2019 saw us partner with Positive Change for Marine Life to clean up the upper reaches of Tingalpa Creek. With over 40 volunteers kayaking and walking the banks of the creek we were successful in removing over 450kg of rubbish. Huge thanks to all our volunteers for participating in the day. It was pleasing to hear from some of our volunteers who have come a few times that the amount of rubbish seemed to be reducing.
Some interesting stats from the day are as follows:
Total items: 3482

Total weight: 456kg

Total plastic: 2106

Total Polystyrene / foam: 786

————————————————————–

Total plastic bag and film remnants: 989

Total plastic drink bottles: 215

Total cigarette butts & lighters: 112

Total plastic bags: 100
Following on from CUAD we will look to run an event for World Ocean Day. We are hosting a viewing of the documentary “Blue the Film” on Friday 7th June at BCC Cinemas, Capalaba. To register your interest please email admin@redlandskayaktours.com.au
