If your council isn't hosting an event this year, why not do a clean up and remove some of the plastic already in the environment? Tangaroa Blue Foundation is inviting people to complete a clean up during Plastic Free July and submit the data to the Australian Marine Debris Initiative (AMDI) Database. The data helps to identify litter issues and enables communities, industry and government to address the problem and stop the flow of litter at the source.
The AMDI Data Collection App will make it easier for you to upload data from your clean up directly to the Database. Check out these videos from Tangaroa Blue Foundation for hints and tips on how to make the clean up fun and safe.
