Clean Up Double Island 2016
Double Island, Noosa

In 2015, Surfrider Foundation Sunshine Coast removed 5 tonnes of litter from the Dunal and shoreline areas of Noosa and Double Island Beach.

Two Clean Up Double Island events involved a total of 505 volunteers removing litter from the beaches to prevent the tide from taking them out to sea.

The events encourage participation from volunteers through its 'weekend away' style, facilitating conversations and communication about marine debris.
