Clean Bay Blueprint

Clean Bay Blueprint is a three-year litter study conducted between July 2017 and June 2020. The project had three aims: to conduct rigorous and replicable methods to quantify plastic pollution through microplastics trawls and beach litter audits; to engage the community in citizen science actvities; and to build partnerships with other organisations that target litter and Bay health.
2.5 billion litter items flow into Port Phillip Bay  annually from the surface waters  of the Yarra and Maribyrnong Rivers.

St Kilda Repair Café

The St Kilda Repair Cafe

The St Kilda Repair Cafe is hosted at the EcoCentre every 2nd Sunday of every month, between 2pm to 5pm. Last repairs start at 4:15pm.

What do you do with a broken toaster? Or with a bike when the wheel runs out of true? Or with a sweater full of moth holes? Toss it? No way! Bring it to the St Kilda Repair Café and let one of our volunteer fixers make it as good as new while you learn new skills and enjoy a cup of tea.

Progress to date (March, 2021):

Boon Wurrung Foundation Logo The EcoCentre acknowledges the Kulin Nations, including the Yalukut Weelam clan of the Boon Wurrung language group, traditional owners of the land on which we are located. We pay respects to their Elders past and present, and extend that respect to other Aboriginal and Elder members of our multicultural community.
