Beach Clean-up with Jack Johnson

Jack Johnson Non-Profit Partner

We were incredibly excited to team up with Jack Johnson on his Meet the Moonlight Tour of Australia and New Zealand as an All At Once Non-Profit Partner.

We set up stalls at his concerts in Western Australia, Gold Coast, Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne and had a great time chatting with everyone about marine debris, the importance of scientific data, how that can be used to inform policy and our source reduction plans.

A beach clean-up was also organised at Whiting Beach, near the Sydney Opera House where Jack Johnson, Ziggy Alberts and Taronga Zoo partnered with us to collect 12.5kg of debris from a small stretch of beach with over 2000 individual pieces logged into the Australian Marine Debris Initiative (AMDI) Database.

  • 604 pieces of Styrofoam
  • 430 pieces of soft plastic remnants
  • 71 plastic lids
  • 15 cotton but sticks
  • Many plastic resin pellets (nurdles)
