Event Details

What a day! Auckland’s Wynyard Quarter is just a bit cleaner after our team of volunteers marched down North Wharf for Silo Park’s 6th birthday. A huge thanks to those who helped out in this clean up.

1,678 pices of coastal litter in total, equating to 200 litres, or 40kgs.

Special mention needs to go to our international volunteers Sam and Conor for doing an amazing job of organising the whole thing. Thanks guys!

Auckland’s Wynyard Quarter, home to our beautiful new Education Centre, is turning 6 years old! To celebrate, we’re hosting a 6th Birthday Coastal Clean-up along the shores of the Waitemata Harbour and we invite you to join us from 10am on Saturday 5 August at The Flagship Education Centre. We’ll start off with our Love Your Coast litter awareness presentation, followed by a clean-up around Wynyard Quarter and a rubbish audit back at The Flagship.

This event takes places on the heels of Plastic Free July, and is being led by two of Sustainable Coastlines’ volunteers: Connor and Sam from the United States. We are aiming to not only educate our event attendees on the dangers of plastic pollution in New Zealand, but to show what can be done to positively impact the problem as well. We’ll be finishing up around 2.30pm.
