Tangaroa Blue are a hands on not for profit organisation fighting the issue of marine debris. PLASTIC. It’s said that by 2050, there’ll be more plastic in our oceans than fish. The team at Tangaroa Blue co-ordinate the Australian Marine Debris Initiative, a network of volunteers and partners who have organised over 10,000 beach clean-up events around Australia. The collected debris is analysed, recorded and recycled. They then trace this debris to its source and work with government and industry bodies to prevent the flow of waste to the ocean and reduce the amount produced.
