Oceanbridge Beach Clean Up's

Keeping our beaches clean

Together with Oceanbridge we intend to treasure our beaches so that we can continue to enjoy what they offer us. Oceanbridge are well involved in New Zealand watersports, especially sailing. They are huge supporters of the Emirates Team and of keeping our coastlines safe so that these sports can continue for a very long time. During the week of our event in Auckland we will be carrying out two beach cleans on Saturday the 6th of March and one on the 20th of March. We encourage the people of Auckland to come to one of the beach clean-ups near them to help us in our vision for sustainable beaches in Aotearoa.

“With water there is life. Let’s care for our planet so we can learn to truly live.”

Waterbourne is excited to be working with the blue carbon project and the Kaipātiki project to ensure our beaches stay clean. 

Blue Carbon Projects goal is to take climate action by simply doing what you love. They believe the pathway to a sustainable future is through the restoration of blue carbon environments. They aim to use outdoor pursuits as a platform to communicate and encourage climate positivity in order to minimise our impact on the environment. By working with various water sporting events to promote climate positivity.

This clean up will take place on the 6th of March beginning at 10am. There will be between 50-100 volunteers joining us to ensure one of Auckland’s most iconic beaches is kept clean. This clean up will span from Takapuna foreshore to North Head.  

Takapuna is a beautiful white sand beach on the Northshore of Auckland where Waterbourne will be based. This primo location is ideal for watersports and is one of Auckland's gems. Our event is 100% eco friendly with all rubbish being recyclable and sustainable. But to ensure this spot is left cleaner than when we first arrived we plan to carry out a thorough beach clean. We welcome volunteers of all ages and hope you will join us for our other festivities celebrating what Auckland has to offer.

Narrow Neck Beach

This clean up will take place on the 20th of March beginning at 10 am. There will be between 50-100 volunteers joining us to ensure one of Auckland’s most iconic beaches is kept clean. 

Narrow Neck Beach is a stretch of golden sand with wonderful views of Rangitoto Island. With such a beautiful view Waterbourne wants to ensure that the beach is a safe place for the public to visit. We'd love for you to come and help us restore Narrow Neck beach.
