"Northern Beaches Clean Up Crew" was founded to solve an immediate litter problem on the local beaches in Sydney. 5 years on, Malin from Kobie and the Crew are leading the campaign against single-use plastic in their communities and neighbourhoods. Thank you to @whatcanwedo.podcast for the interview.

Please recycle, re-use and re-home your old or unused jackets to those that need it most. With an estimated 116,000 people across Australia classified as homeless, XTM and their Heat the Homeless appeal aims to give people an opportunity to donate quality, pre-loved winter jackets to warm those in need and keep the jackets out of landfill. All you need to do is drop your jacket off at a participating Heat the Homeless retail store. Once received, XTM partner with over 2,000 charities to distribute the jackets to those that need it most. The closest ones to the beaches (as we know it) is Anaconda at Warringah mall and Snowbound in Chatswood. For questions please follow this link:

Rubbish at Aboriginal site
Broken glass is something we find at all our clean ups. Animals out in the wild often cut open their paws by unknowingly walking over broken glass. They can also be impaled by glass, which often leads to death. Another common problem is wildlife getting their heads or paws stuck in glass jars. Now authorities are keeping a watch on a treasured Aboriginal site in Allambie Heights after late night revellers smashed beer bottles and left rubbish near rock engravings created before European settlement. No respect for nature and no respect for The Elders of this country.

Can we get this on the beaches?
Do you maybe knows someone who could be our local Carter?
Carter wanted to close the food waste loop in his community, so he started collecting food scraps on his bicycle to create compost!
Eight years later and his initiative has turned into a successful business that diverts food waste from landfills, creates healthy soil, and strengthens the bond of his community. Once the compost is mature, members of the program can receive a full five gallon bucket of compost which closes the loop of waste-- their food scraps turn into healthy soil which will nourish their gardens. Carter’s brother has even started selling the worms so that community members can compost at home. Learn more at carterscompost.com.
Share if you want a bicycle-powered community compost program in your community!

Elastic rubber bands kill sharks
A dead baby Blind Shark found with a rubber band around its gills. Elastic bands should be cut before thrown out. Who would have thought that an elastic band could kill a shark?
Millions of animals die every year because of our plastic pollution and waste. Cleaning up a beach can save the lives of thousands of animals. Not using single use plastic can save the lives of thousands of animals. Educating your friends about single use plastic and what changes they can make to their everyday lives to reduce plastic can save the lives of millions of animals. The change starts with you.
