What a load of rubbish!

This haul of trash was collected in just half-an-hour on Omaha Beach by Zambia, Otis and Ziggy Neely, of Matakana. Their mother, Chelsea de Berry, said it highlighted the “outrageous” amount of rubbish that was out at sea, much of it broken down over time into small pieces that could be easily swallowed by wildlife. Their efforts to clear the beach coincided with the start of Plastic Free July, which challenges people to stop using single-use plastic like bags, drink bottles, straws, takeaway cups, cutlery and balloons, and opt for reusable or refillable alternatives.
