Sustainable Coastlines

 Last Friday the Student Council went down to the beach to clean up rubbish with Te Kawa from the Sustainable Coastlines organisation. We found plastic, metal, rubber and cigarette ends (they are not natural).

We found plastic, metal, rubber and cigarette ends (they are not natural). Once we had made our way down to the end of the beach we went up the stairs and made our way on to the road/ foot-path to start cleaning up rubbish. Then we came back down the beach for one last clean up.

 We need your help!!! The sustainable coastline guys are organising a large scale coastal clean-up this weekend. It's being held out at Makara Beach on Saturday 24th November from 10:00am People can register online at this link here:
