Rethink your rubbish trail, Captain’s orders

Captain Trash at his stall on The Terrace. 175034

Captain Trash hits the streets of Ocean Grove on Remembrance Day 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”.
Ocean Grove Coastcare hosted a breakfast with Captain Trash at Driftwood Cafe and then he roamed The Terrace meeting with local shoppers.
