Plastiki Open Day


Sunday 1 August 2010 -

The Clean Up Australia and Clean Up the World team were at the Australian Maritime Museum for Plastiki Open Day. Hundreds of people turned up to meet Clean Up the World Ambassador David de Rothschild and view the Plastiki boat. The Clean Up team also had an information and product stand set up at the site, offering everyday sustainable solutions to help the people reduce, reuse and recycle waste.

The HiFlow collapsible water bottles were a feature of the stand and an great example of a practical alternative to using plastic bottles.
