LitterWatch – a local initiative with global outcomes!

LitterWatch is a local initiative by concerned organisations and groups; aware plastic litter is a major threat to our environment. Plastic does not disappear. It ends up in our oceans, even if dropped in Wyndham, somewhere in metropolitan Melbourne or even inland, and will last for a long time, causing irreparable damage.

LitterWatch asks our participants that they take some action to support our litter concerns.

  1. Clean up a litter hot spot
  2. Advocate for change
  3. Become better consumers

 

Weerama

LitterWatch was at Wyndham’s own ‘Weerama’ festival on Sunday 24th March 2013, complete with the LitterWatch monster! An excellent day.
