The Seaside Scavenge

More Than Just A Clean-Up

If you want to ‘buy’ you have to pick up some trash.

A shirt that you like may be 10 pieces of rubbish, so that’s what you’ve got to go get to trade in for the shirt.

17 August, 2015

The Seaside Scavenge is about putting a value on rubbish.

Seaside Scavenge want to create a community around re-use and recycling. They're setting up market stalls with donated second-hand goods.

How does it work?
Come along check out the markets, see what you like - but the catch is if you want to ‘buy’ you have to pick up some trash. A shirt that you like may be 10 pieces of rubbish, so that’s what you’ve got to go get to trade in for the shirt.

The Seaside Scavenge will collate all the data on the trash collected and send it to Tangaroa Blue Foundation, who keep Australia wide databases of beach rubbish items and quantities.

It all kicks off on Sunday 17 August with the markets and the music kicking off at 1pm. If you’re around Coogee or have a free Sunday arvo, be sure to come down, join the fun, do your bit and see how the Seaside Scavenge experience goes for you.
