On Sunday September 17th, 72 volunteers made their way over to Green Island, located in Brisbane’s Moreton Bay, for Ocean Crusaders – Green Island Clean Up.
Green Island has a reputation for being visited by more debris than people and the results of the day speak for themselves with an outstanding 660kg of debris removed from the island.
Below is a summary of the rubbish collected on the day that was taken for recycling or landfill –
- 263 plastic bags
- 182 plastic bottles
- 300m of fishing line
- 500m+ of rope/string
- 622 glass bottles
- 60 pieces of netting
- 47 thongs
- 1 yacht rudder or dagger board
- 1 large prop guard
We are very proud to have been able to support such a great initiative to help clean up our backyard and protect our wildlife!
