Sea Red about Rubbish, Stockton Beach Clean 2015!

Irukandji is a proud supporter of the annual Stockton Beach Clean Up. 15 tonnes of rubbish could be pulled out on the day with so much more left behind including many years worth buried under the sand. Every single piece of plastic could kill hundreds of marine animals as once they die and decompose the plastic returns to its job of being consumed by unsuspecting sea creatures.

If the Plastic is not big enough to block the intestines any more it brings with it another problem; all the small pieces of plastic floating in the ocean bond with DDT (an extremely dangerous chemical that never leaves the ocean/earth cycles) then it travels up the food chain where the top (us) consume it in ever increasing proportions. In Humans DDT is linked to many ailments including miscarriage, diabetes and it can be an endocrine disruptor leading to auto-immune diseases.

Irukandji would love to personally make 2015 the biggest year yet for the See Red About Rubbish Stockton Beach Clean!! With your help we could pull out 30 Tonnes!!

Plus there are so many prizes at the end, last year pretty much EVERYBODY  got an awesome prize from a local business. Its win win!

The 2015 date is yet to be formerly announced, it is tentatively been booked in for the 25th October. As soon as we know more we shall let you know
