Troy Trail & Shoreline Cleanup on Cape Breton was a huge success May 28, 2016! Volunteers picked up 50 bags of fishing rope, bait bags, plastic jugs, plastic buckets, old lobster traps, bouys, styrofoam and plastic bags. This clean-up was organized by the Ceilidh Coastal Trail Association and sponsored by Walmart and the Clean Foundation of Nova Scotia


We organized a number of World Oceans Day activities at schools in Victoria (Australia) a few weeks ago and students developed artwork from plastics that we collected on the beach (in line with the New Year’s Resolution: Less Disposable Plastic). We are putting together a display of the artwork at the Australian Marine Sciences Association conference in Geelong next week.
