On Saturday the 15th September, Positive Change for Marine Life and NE Waste came together to help celebrate World Clean Up Day!
We were honoured to have recently been nominated by the NSW Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) as finalists for the Community Leadership Category in this year’s Green Globe Awards. The Community Leadership award recognises outstanding community leadership and commitment from NSW not-for-profit organisations whose sustainable initiatives are locally relevant and have widespread benefits for communities.
Over the past three months our team in India has been forming alliances with local organisations, government agencies and community groups, as well as undertaking beach surveys and brand audits to determine the best way to tackle the myriad of pollution and waste management issues currently facing the marine environment here.
Our team in India is trying to be as sustainable as possible in all of their practices. This includes not using any chemically based soaps, single-use platics or other chemical products in our office or during our on-ground work. Tables need staining? Welcome coffee grinds, beetroot and turmeric - natural staining at its best!
