Incredible amounts of rubbish were picked up from Petone Beach during an organised cleanup event on Sunday.
The event, run by the Petone Beach Clean Up Crew, attracted 40 volunteers on Sunday to clean up the beach.
“The western end of Petone Beach is a catchment area for plastic. Plastic that is washed up on the beach by the tides. An easy way to make a positive difference to our enviroment is to help by picking it all up. Every piece of plastic collected is one less piece for marine life to consume, one less piece for marine life to become entangled in.”
