A tidy offer you can’t refuse

Captain Trash will be in Ocean Grove next weekend to help spread the message of plastic pollution.
Captain Trash is the alter ego of Port Phillip Baykeeper Neil Blake. Neil has over three decades in environmental management and was the feature in the award-winning documentary Baykeepers.
Through his persona as Captain Trash, Neil uses music and humour to teach the five ‘ARRRGHS’: Refuse, Reduce, Re-use, Recycle and Remove and is passionate about spreading the message to “leave only footprints on the sand”.
He is particularly popular with the younger generation, but his messages resonate with the bigger kids, too.
Ocean Grove Coastcare will host a breakfast with Captain Trash at Driftwood Cafe, 7.30 to 9am on Saturday 11 November.
Following the breakfast, Captain Trash will be roaming The Terrace meeting with local shoppers, and Ocean Grove Coastcare will host a stall at Driftwood where you can learn more about going plastic free and purchase a locally designed jute bag for $5. A free coffee voucher from Driftwood will be included with each jute bag sale.
The event is part of Ocean Grove Coastcare’s plastic-free initiative, encouraging local residents and visitors to ditch single-use plastics.
Anyone is welcome to join Captain Trash for breakfast. RSVPs to Jackie Scally on 0468 813 609 by Wednesday 8 November. Breakfast is at cafe prices.
