World Oceans Day - Port Phillip Bay

Victoria's marine emblem - the weedy sea dragon amongst seagrass




Today is World Oceans Day. It is also a bitterly cold day in Melbourne when probably the last thing on your mind is going to the beach. All the same, Two Hands Project invites us to do two things today - not accept or use any single use plastic and spend 30 minutes and our two hands to clean our beaches. The tides relentlessly bring in new waves of litter every day regardless of the weather.

Just spent half an hour on Port Melbourne Beach and picked up a very dispiriting trail of broken polystyrene beads, straws, earplugs and plastic bottles. Hardly made a dent.
