1 hour. 4 people. 6 bags of trash.
The things we dug up today made it feel like we were investigating a crime. Together, we found a syringe, an unused condom, a men’s wallet with membership cards, a pair of men’s jeans, a cardigan and maybe a small baggie of heroin!?
We also found loads of @woolworths_au and @colessupermarkets plastic bags, styrofoam, straws, @cocacola cans, @evianwater bottles, coffee cups, @cadbury and @nestle chocolate wrappers, a milk crate, an uneaten fun-sized bounty bar, a tyre iron, a @nikesoccer ball and an astonishing amount of @mcdonalds bags, burger boxes, cups and straws.
I think these McDonald’s straws are haunting me. Every week, there’s so many of them. They never die. Maybe they have special powers of immortality? Maybe if I hold one, I’ll become immortal too?? Thank you @_jameslake @hoppingtonpost and Kirsty from @girlsrockmelb for making this a Trash Party. Regardless of the never-ending straws, it’s been incredible to see our progress each week and have a different group of wonderful people helping out. You rock!
