1 Man, 1 Dog, 1 Year, 10,000 pieces of rubbish

Michael Jullyan, architect and founder of local practice Thinktank Architects has been picking up rubbish along Wynnum Esplanade every weekend this year as he walks his dog. In that time he reckons he’s picked up 10,000 pieces of rubbish, a quarter of which is broken glass (mainly beer and spirits bottles), a quarter plastic bottle lids and slurpee lids and a quarter wrappers and plastic bags, almost all of which can be recycled.

We think this is an absolutely sterling effort and, as Michael says “We can all make a difference, it’s pretty easy.”

All you need is a few bags with you when you go for a walk… and maybe a pair of gloves.

Thinktank Architects are members of Wynnum Business. Read more about them here…

  1. I am not in the same league as Michael , but everyday some uncaring people drop cans ,food wrappers, bottles, paper up and down our street in Wynnum. Why are people like this .I pick it up but if I dont no one will do it. But I like to have a nice street.
