This morning I attended the fourth annual Surfrider Foundation Eco Challenge at Coolangatta. There were so many great educational stalls. I learnt a lot at the event. One fact I learnt is that unfortunately only 3 to 5 per cent of all the plastic in the world are recycled. The local musicians music were great. It was so good to see the event taking sustainability to the next level. They had recycle and compost bins as well a water bottle re-fill station. I was thrilled to learn that this event was plastic free and was also completely solar powered. Only if all events would step up and be as sustainable as the Surfrider Foundation Eco Challenge.
Surfrider Fundation is a fantastic organisation making such a difference to conserving the vast stretches of Australia's beaches. They have a great campaign called Rise Above Plastics. It may alarm you to know that not one Australian beach is litter free. But thanks to Surfrider less litter is ending up on our beaches. Make sure to get involved with their conservation programs and to check out there amazing work here.
