Marine Battery Recycling

We have a marine battery recycling project trialled and tested in Sydney harbour. Our goal is to recycle 90% of boat batteries saving 110 000 plastic cases from landfill, 250 000 liters of sulphuric acid leaching into the water table and removing over 500 000 kilos of toxic lead from the environment.

Project underway -July 2020

River Bank stabilization

We invest directly in to river bank stabilization with our team of volunteers. Where access is limited we use nature and all that she gives us.

Photo is attached is one of our younger teams building a natural seawall of drift wood , tied together and pegged into the existing embankment.

OCEAN IDEAS THINK TANK

Our young inventors have deigned a floating bin which catches marine rubbish whilst attached to boat moorings. The fin attached to the simple design means that the rubbish stays caught as it always faces into the current
