Rocky Shore Cleanup!

Labrador Blog's Leong Wai and myself tackled debris on the rocky shore with the help of five other volunteers including a teacher on a recce trip who joined in on the spot. NParks provided us with some sacks and we managed to clear some 200kg of trash during the low tide.

Based on our impressions (we did not really categorise or count the data), an estimated 75% of the items picked up was glass, 20% was plastic and some 5% was metal.
