Beach Clean Events & Marine Debris Workshops
Saltwater Eco actively give back to the marine environments that we work in:
Community Beach Cleans
Every season we host at least one local beach clean event, our most famous being our Annual Omaha Community Beach Clean! Our team are in the process of expanding these events, with the intention of running a series of beach clean events up and down the Matakana Coast each season. We’re always on the look out for event sponsors, supports and collaborators so if you’d like to get involved please get in touch.
Marine Debris Workshops
A big part of our Sustainability focus is to educate and raise awareness about the issues and impacts surrounding marine debris (human litter in our oceans). This includes running interactive workshops, highlighting the importance of reducing our global waste footprint and how small daily changes contribute to massive positive change.
Ocean plastics are by far the largest marine debris culprit, especially single use plastics and packaging items. Our workshops actively promote plastic free alternatives and sustainable living ideas, with the help of our epic eco partners such as Eco Food Wraps. If you’d like us to run a marine debris workshop or provide resources for a local event, business or school we’d be more than happy to help.
Plant A Native Commitment & Community Planting Days
We plant a native tree for every client we have!
This means by choosing Saltwater Eco our client’s make a positive difference to the environment. Learn more about our Plant a Native Story and Revegation Project.
All the natives trees planted are:
- Grown from local (Eco sourced) seeds.
- Of ecological value to the environment in which they are planted,
- Incorporated into ongoing revegetation projects around the north Auckland region.
For more information on our Plant a Native commitment, or if you’d like advice as to how to get involved / begin your own native re veg project we’d love to hear from you!
