The plastic is already being gathered to make the beautiful Grays mandala in July! Huge well done to the volunteers of the Grays Beachcombers this month – look at this massive haul of plastic collected from Grays Beach!

28 people collected 50 bags, which included 247 bottles and 2 bags of other plastic gems we’ll use to create the T100 Grays mandala.  Thank you to everyone who took part and to Steve Catchpole who organises this and similar local groups to clean up the river.
