Litter Free Oceans

Every piece of plastic ever created still exists, and over 5 trillion pieces of it are floating in our oceans as litter. Single-use plastic is an unnecessary convenience with a big impact on marine wildlife.

Calculate the positive impact you can make on our oceans by switching to reusable items.

Aquatic species across Australia are impacted by river pollution, leading to injury, starvation or death.

Litter Free Rivers

Rivers are the lifeblood of the country, so many native wildlife including the Platypus rely on a healthy waterway to survive. Sadly our freshwater systems are experiencing a serious threat to their health from pollution from litter. We can all play a part in reducing single use plastics at the source. Find out how - download our free toolkit for your school or business and create a world of change for platypus and our rivers.
