Clean Bay Blueprint
Clean Bay Blueprint is a three-year litter study conducted between July 2017 and June 2020. The project had three aims: to conduct rigorous and replicable methods to quantify plastic pollution through microplastics trawls and beach litter audits; to engage the community in citizen science actvities; and to build partnerships with other organisations that target litter and Bay health.
The new EcoCentre will provide space for Melbourne to connect, act and transform.The people of Port Phillip and Greater Melbourne want to live in a greener, cooler, more liveable city. We want to breathe clean air and walk on litter-free beaches. We want our children and grandchildren to swim in a plastic-free bay, to hear birds singing in our parks and gardens, to understand and care about this place we call home. We want our homes and streets to be resilient to the impacts of climate change.
Volunteers drive our community-powered action, as we work to inspire, educate and demonstrate sustainable environmental practice and strengthen people's connection to the natural world. All volunteers must complete an induction before volunteering with us.
Unclogging Earth's arteries
Waterways are the arteries of the Earth. Plastic pollution is clogging waterways, endangering wildlife, the climate, and our way of life.
