Tangaroa Blue were honoured to be invited to have an information stand at the Plastic Free July family afternoon held in Margaret River on 30th June. The event was a way of raising awareness of how much plastic we use and dispose of in our everyday lives and to showcase plastic free alternatives such as refillable drink bottles, reusable shopping bags, eco-friendly takeaway packaging etc. The afternoon was well attended by interested locals all with a common goal of minimising their plastic use over the month of July.
We found the afternoon a great way to raise awareness of the unfortunate end result of a world obsessed with plastic, oceans filled with it, and were happy to inspire and engage some more volunteers for the upcoming annual WA Beach Clean Up event this October. Good luck to all of those brave enough to have signed up to the Plastic Free July challenge!
