Ten Little Pieces came about one beautiful Summer’s day when I had my children hot, tired and cranky, whinging for the long promised ice cream on Noosa Main Beach. So while I packed up the beach kit, I said to my kids that an ice cream would cost them ten little pieces of rubbish.
To my astonishment, within 20m or so of beach, they returned to me with 3 shopping bags full of cans, bottles, straws, food wrappers
and cigarette butts.
We washed our hands, got the ice creams, and in an effort to think globally by acting locally,
Ten Little Pieces was born.
#tenlittlepieces is an empowerment movement for ordinary folks to make a big difference
by collecting ten little pieces of rubbish anytime, anywhere, especially with your kids.
So next time you’re at the playground or the beach or park, walking to school or riding your bikes, take a minute to love where you live and collect ten little pieces.
We’re a 5 Gyres Ambassador
and a member of The United Nations Environment Program – Global Partnership on Marine Litter.
Be empowered. Feel inspired. Pick it up.
