Clean Up Australia Day is a well-established and respected annual event that encompasses 7000 clean-up locations Australia wide. On Sunday March 7th the Brisbane Pentagon team ventured down to the Sandgate Beach location to give back to the community.
Annually, it is estimated that 5.25 trillion pieces of plastic waste enter our oceans. 70% sinks into our ocean’s ecosystem, 15% floats, and 15% lands on our beaches. It was amazing to see how much small, single use plastic we managed to find washed up on what seemed at first glance a clean beach.
It was excellent to see the Pentagon Brisbane team come down to the beach on the weekend and working together to take part in the national initiative. Special mention goes out to Jolanda who managed to find an old pair of thongs (flip-flops). Only a short while later, was confronted by a lady looking for the missing pair!
Thank you and well done to all involved. Hopefully we can build on this event next year.
