Get rid of the plastic in the Creek
Rubbish is something that we make a lot of and we need not have so much! We can turn what we call rubbish into valuable usage and use it for a various number of reasons rather than use them as landfill or leave them as plastic in lakes and creeks.

This function will be held on Sunday 10th November 2019 from 9.00 am to 1.00 pm. The venue is at the VMR Brisbane, 95 Allpass Parade, Shorncliffe.

A Cabbage Tree Creek Paddle Against Plastic began last year. It was a great success with more than 4 tonnes of debris removed over 3 days and the community event is still one of the largest lengths of debris at any Paddle Against Plastic event with 1.41 tonne of debris removed from the mangroves!

So now - it is the time to go back into the creek a year later and see if there is more rubbish or materials we can use or get rid of. There are also new areas that they will looking for more rubbish in this area.

First of all, we go on the paddle crafts of any type and go in the water in a fun family-friendly event. We can almost liken this to an actual little treasure hunt, but slightly different.

There are a limited amounts of crafts that can go in the water and if you do not have one, you will have to just get a ticket while registering in the registration process that includes the paddle craft you require.

If there are still no crafts available, please keep an eye out as the organisers will attempt to get additional craft from other people. If this cannot be done, they are going to go down anyway and clean along the banks which I think is far better than doing nothing.

VMR will once again put on a barbecue for all the helpful people who will help with the volunteers and the volunteering people.

This project is supported by Healthy Land & Water through funding from the Australian Government's National Landcare Program.

For more details please phone Ian on 0412 932 808 or email him on

This will not only be helpful, but it will also be a fun event. More information can be found on their Facebook page.
