Did you know that over 8 million tonnes of plastic leak into the sea each year?
Which is like dumping a garbage truck load into the ocean every minute!
An estimated 150 million tonnes of plastic are present in the global marine environment
and unless we change our behaviour, by 2050 plastic in our oceans will outweigh fish!
The information and image above are from the January 2016 World Economic Forum report.

340 grams of indigestible items were found in its gut and most of this was plastic.
There's no time to lose!
Using music and film we aim to spread the message that EVERY BIT OF LITTER REALLY MATTERS.
Who are we?
Port Phillip EcoCentre is a not-for-profit, community-managed, environment organisation, working
with schools, community groups and councils on a range of litter education, prevention and clean-up
projects to stop litter from entering storm water drains and impacting the Port Phillip Bay catchment.
MOOP Patrol (MOOP stands for Matter Out Of Place) and MC Guttermouth are
waste minimisation educators, musicians, performers and co-creators of this project.
