Large Scale Clean-Up
In partnership with local organisations
Clean Beaches for Everyone
We treat our oceans like a garbage tip, so we shouldn’t be surprised that the oceans eject the rubbish we throw in it, back onto the beaches and islands we love to use.
Littered along every beach in the world, are particles of plastic, either washed up or left by humans. Sitting in the sun they degrade at an alarming rate, into smaller pieces that are a real threat to wildlife. Birds feed from the high tide line, small crustaceans live in the area searching for resources, maybe a new shell for a hermit crab, or food for their starving bodies.
Large scale clean-up events require organisation, planning, promotion and support. Sponsoring an Ocean Crusaders clean-up event is a great way to increase your brand’s standing in the community and gain valuable media coverage.
We want our clean-up events to be a thing of the past. If you have a festival, concert, regatta or other activities that could have a waste impact on our waterways and oceans, talk to us about how to minimise that impact.

Ocean Crusaders conducts an annual clean up of this amazing island. In 2018 900 volunteers removed nearly 7 tonne in just 6 hours.

This is a joint venture between many companies that run tourist activities on the island. We clean the Eastern Beach – in 2019 we removed 1.97 tonne of debris.

Moreton Bay Clean-Ups
- Green Island Clean Up (Moreton Bay) – is a regular clean up for Ocean Crusaders that sees volunteers head to the island for a morning of debris removal.
- St Helena Island Clean Up (Moreton Bay) – sees volunteers clean the island and have a quick tour through the historic ruins before returning to the mainland where we host the Moreton Bay Environmental Expo showcasing all the local environmental groups looking after our bay.
