Paddle Against Plastic

30 Apr 2019

Environmental group Ocean Crusaders is back in Docklands on June 2 to clean up Moonee Ponds Creek.

The group removes rubbish from canoes and kayaks, but founder Ian Thomson said there was also plenty of work to be done from the shore.

“Last time, there was so much rubbish down there, we didn’t even get to the first bridge,” Mr Thomson told Docklands News.

He said the group was commercially sponsored by the Port of Melbourne but would also tackle both sides of Moonee Ponds Creek in the days following.

The first of three 2019 Moonee Ponds Creek Paddle Against Plastic and Clean Up days will run from Ron Barassi Snr Park from 9am to noon on Sunday, June 2.

Last year’s inaugural event was a huge success, with more than100 people turning up and removing nearly a tonne of trash.

“Unfortunately, seven weeks later we returned and saw most of it was back. So now we are going to attack it again and see what we can achieve,” Mr Thomson said.
