The Trash Tribe is our signature conservation project. Every year we take groups of creative and inspiring Australians on journeys to clean up some of Australia’s most polluted beaches – these beaches are all remote, making the journey a once in a lifetime experience.
After spending a week cleaning the beach, the Tribe returns to their community and creates a project to share their experience. In this way, the Trash Tribe spreads the message of ocean pollution and plastic waste to every corner of the country.
To date, our Trash Tribe expeditions have removed 10.1 tonnes of marine pollution from the Australian coastline.
