Living Ocean’s Community Celebrate Living A Plastic Free Life!...

Living Ocean’s Community celebrate Living A Plastic Free Life!...

Ocean Lovers, Locals, Friends and Families can start packing the ‘keep-cups’ and buckets in preparation the 2018 Plastic Free July Community Celebration!

For the first time, ocean conservation charity LIVING OCEAN will host a HUGE day of beach cleans, great food, live music, workshops, face painting, films and so much more to showcase all the great work our community is doing in order to live a Plastic Free Life.

As part of the Plastic Free July initiative, Living Ocean invites everyone to come along to Barrenjoey High School, off Tasman Road in Avalon from 10am – 4pm on Saturday 28 July for a day of love for our planet and learning about living a plastic free life.

Hear from the discussion panel of community and environmental leaders as they get stuck into the plastics situation. Take part in the hands-on Bees Wax Wraps workshop and make your own non-plastic food wraps. Make Boomerang Bags, or learn how to recycle efficiently. Walk through the Avalon Community Garden and visit the chooks!

Informative educational demos, talks and eco friendly stalls will be on hand – grab a fantastic sustainable t-shirt or a zero waste reusable wooden cutlery set complete with stainless steel drinking straw and hemp pouch!

Visit the dedicated folks from Living Ocean, Wander Lightly, Sea Shepherd, Surfrider, Green Team, Take 3, Kimbriki, Wander Lightly … and so many more.

Living Ocean Founder Robbi Newman announced “there will be something for everyone on the day, from cleaning our beautiful beach to learning how to deal with the plastics we find, and of course having heaps of fun while we’re doing it”

“ With so many local and environmental experts, crusaders, and friends there to chat to and learn from – ultimately our aim is for people to go home with a great deal more knowledge about how to look after our planet and oceans by living a plastic free life.” Robbi stated.

Attendees are also encouraged to bring drink bottles on the day which they can fill up at the water stations provided.
