Lancelin beach, foreshore and ocean clean up is a great way for families, students, service groups, and neighbors to join together, take care of our fragile marine environment, show community support for our shared natural resources, and to have fun!
With plastics taking hundreds of years to breakdown into plastic powder, every piece that is removed from our beaches is one piece that won't be ingested or entangled by a marine animal or seabird!
Please join our efforts by bringing your own reusable supplies to the Cleanup.
Required: Gloves, sun protection and a bag to collect rubbish.
The Truth About Plastic:
- Plastic fragments contaminate even the most remote locations on earth. Harmful chemicals leached by plastics are present in the bloodstream and tissues of almost every one of us.
- Plastic pollution harms people, animals, and the environment. Plastic is not biodegradable. In the marine environment, plastic breaks down into smaller particles that absorb toxic chemicals, are ingested by wildlife, and enter the food chain that we depend on.
- Consumption of throwaway plastics, such as bottles, containers, bags, and packaging, has spiraled out of control.
