If you love the beaches on the Mornington Peninsula, this morning tea and conversation at the Safety Beach Sailing Club, is not to be missed!

Join us to learn more about the harrowing plastics in our Oceans and what more you can do to help.

Plastic straws, single-use plastic water bottles, plastic food wrapping and fishing debris are types of marine plastic pollution that we're familiar with, but there's another insidious type that often goes unnoticed: 'Nurdles'. A nurdle is a very small pellet of plastic which serves as raw material in the manufacture of plastic products. They are about the size of a lentil and are considered a “microplastic” because they are less than 5mm in size. Countless billion nurdles are used each year to make nearly all our plastic products and due to accidental spills during processing or transportation, many end up washing up on our shores.

Why not stay on after 1pm as well to join Ricki and her team on Safety Beach for a Picnic Unwrapped picnic to learn more about avoiding the use of single use plastics in our daily lives.
