On Friday we were invited to speak to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd graders at Cardiff Elementary School. The school overlooks Cardiff Bay and with such a beautiful vista to lookout over whilst studying it wasn’t surprising that the children at the school were so inspired by nature. We were also very impressed with the extensive recycling units they had around the school.
In the evening a good friend of ours Bart, threw a BBQ for us and people in the area to come and hear about TOPtoTOP and see if there were any ways in which they may be able to help. Dario put on a presentation also which the crowd seemed to enjoy!
Whilst there we were presented with a new digital camera, as unfortunately ours has started to fall apart. It was so incredibly generous and kind and we really can’t thank you all enough. It was so great to meet you all and we look forward to seeing more of you all in the future.
Today was the day of our big beach clean up. It was great to be joined by so many families and members of the community. Thanks especially to Mizu Life for your support and shared enthusiasm for reducing ocean plastics by eliminating the use of plastic bottles. Check out their great product here. . We were also joined by a Sea-Lion which caused much excitement!
After an hour we had collected all the rubbish we could find from the beach – with the kids beating the adults in how much they could find! Considering the size of the group it was good to see that there was not so much trash to be collected – the sign of a well kept, looked after beach!
Thank you again to everyone who came!!
