News Anchor Keith Demicoli ditched the suit and tie, and the desk and headed to Golden Bay to participate in a massive awareness activity organised as part of the Saving Our Blue Campaign, of which he is an avid activist! Keith told Bay that today’s main focus was on microplastics – especially because we are in the middle of Plastic-Free-July!
The Saving Our Blue Team Members were sieving the sand at Golden Bay and taking out any pieces of micro- and not-so-micro-plastic. Keith told us that they are not finding as much single-use plastic as they did before, but he did say that there has been an increase of cigarette butts on our beaches.
The “microplastic” operation, developed to also include cigarette-butt collection – and in fact, as Keith told us, nearly 1 kilo of cigarette butts were collected.
