Seaside Scavenge is trading trash for cash in an attempt to raise awareness around environmental protection.
“Imagine that your coffee cup or plastic straw could be used as cash to buy clothes – pretty crazy idea right? Seaside Scavenge is making that possible at their marine conservation events.”
Saturday the 14th of September Seaside Scavenge will be hosting another Lakeside Scavenge in Jindabyne!
Seaside Scavenge is a waterway clean-up where the litter participants collect becomes the currency to purchase quality pre-loved clothes, books and more donated by the local community.
For every 10 pieces of litter collected participants are rewarded with a token to use in the pop-up market. There will also be prizes on the day which are donated by local businesses.
Participants will sort and catalogue data for the Australian Marine Debris Database alongside volunteers from the local community. This will help the Australian Marine Debris Database to identify what the biggest polluters and risks are to Australia’s Marine Environment.
“The scavenge is about having fun while doing something good for waterways and our planet,” Director, Anna Jane said.
“It’s great to see the community come and be a part of the solution to the impact of litter, especially plastics.” Says Joshua Holliday, Event Coordinator.
“It is estimated Australians use close to 3 billion plastic straws every year. Some of our local businesses are helping to reduce that.”
Registration for the Jindabyne Seaside Scavenge is open.
