Join us and Port Phillip Leader as we pledge to #LoveOurBay this summer.

Let’s remove litter from our streets and beaches before it reaches our Bay where it can harm our vulnerable marine life.

This is also a great opportunity to help reduce plastic pollution.

How to get involved?

Pledge what you will do to #LoveOurBay and stop plastic pollution littering Port Phillip Bay.

You can either choose your own pledge or one of the following .

I pledge to:

  • pick up at least three pieces of litter when I go outside
  • not take glass to Port Phillip’s parks and beaches
  • not use plastic straws
  • use a reusable coffee cup
  • always put my rubbish in a bin or take it home.

Make your pledge by:

  • tagging #LoveOurBay on social media
  • uploading your photo on this page.
