We reached our August goal of $5,000!!!

We reached $5,000 on our crowdfunding page, thanks to a total of 71 incredible supporters so far! We cannot begin to express our gratitude. Every donation fills us with inspiration for the paddle, and all our donors should know they are a very special part of this journey

Super Successful Chuffed Workshop

We ran our first workshop as Chuffed ambassadors in Brisbane this week. The workshop gave tips for crowdfunding and attracted an awesome group of 12 people, all attending for a variety of reasons. All of the money that attendees paid for tickets goes to our cause, which is amazing! We received really positive feedback from the event and hope to do more in the future.

A record-breaking Cleanup!

Mathilde spent a week cleaning up Chilli Beach up Cape York, Australia with the Tangaroa Blue Foundation. 40 people across several volunteer/local council groups cleaned up 6.7km of beach and picked up 7 TONNE of rubbish, which is the record for any Tangaroa cleaning event.

 

Some of the data counted from 831.5 bags filled of marine debris on this clean up included:

  • 1009 cigarette lighters
  • 2279 toothbrushes/combs/razors
  • 3204 bleach bottles
  • 3325 plastic drink bottles
  • 5547 thongs

Over 60 % of debris removed was plastic fragments. This is becoming quite alarming as we are leaving a legacy for future generations. Although over 90% of the debris do not come from Australia but from our Asia Pacific neighbours. We share a global ocean and it is everyone’s responsibility to keep our oceans clean.
