Brush for Change!

Tangaroa Blue Foundation Meme 3 LowOne of the most common items of plastic debris collected by our army of volunteers is the humble toothbrush. With each of us, on average, using 400 toothbrushes in our lifetime, and with approximately 25 million Australians; that equates to 3,500 TONNES of plastic toothbrushes each and every year going into our landfill, waterways and oceans. That is a frightening statistic! The flow on impact to our marine life is devastating.

Jump on board with us and Brush for Change and help make a difference. From October 1st until December 31 every time you make a purchase and use the coupon code: TB117 - two dollars will be passed onto Tangaroa Blue Foundation. The pack of four toothbrushes comes to under $20 so please visit Brush for Change at www.brushforchange.com.au and let’s all Brush for Change.

Two Friends Taking on the Elements for a Cleaner Ocean!

MLLucy Graham and Mathilde Gordon are launching their mission to paddle approximately 2000km, raising awareness of the issue of marine debris and inspiring women to pursue adventure.

In May 2018 Lucy Graham and Mathilde Gordon will launch their kayaks off the shores of Alaska and into the Inside Passage. However, the journey starts today as the pair launch the larger project; spreading awareness and raising funds for marine debris programs. Today their website, Facebook and Instagram go ‘live’.

The young women, both in their twenties, are taking on a challenge of their lifetime, paddling from Juneau, Alaska to Vancouver Island, Canada, a stretch of almost 2000km. The paddle will take them around 2.5 months and will test their resolve and commitment to themselves and their cause. “We are passionate about adventure and challenge. We haven’t done anything like this before, but that is what challenge is all about and we are determined and excited to overcome this one. It is going to be the adventure of a lifetime!” Lucy Graham.
