Hi everyone Flossie here so sorry I have taken so long to write my blog but I have been sick and also I have now properly started secondary school which is really awesome but it takes up ALOT of time!!!anyway this week I will tell you all about what you have been missing out on!
A couple of weeks ago my Mum and I had to get up at six oclock in the morning because we needed to get to RTE radio station where I was going to do a live interview! The interview went really well and it was loads of fun! I was doing the interview with an amazing man who is a marine biologist and who has got a Seabin put into Howth marina! So after the interview my Mum and I went to Howth to see the Seabin and how it was doing and when we were there we met The Cloak Of Howth who is an amazing man who has made a cloak out of loads of broken toys he has found so n the beach! It is really heavy and really cool and the Cloak Of Howth was so funny!Up at Howth we saw the bin that we really want down at Sandycove………… a giant fish made of rubbish to put your rubbish in !The Seabin was in a really good spot where it was attracting a lot of rubbish which was so great!It was so cool and I am very happy that Howth has a Seabin now!
The following weekend we had the Dalkey Lobster festival which was so much brilliant because Flossie and The Beach Cleaners had a stall! It was loads of fun and we had such a cool stall almost everything on it was found on the beach! and we even had a activity spot where kids where able to make things out of rubbish found on the beach! I looked after that area! My friend Abi helped out at all times [on the first day]!!!!!! We had loads of fun games like which jar has a pair of pants in and which one is seaweed and which one is plasticand if you got it right you got a prize!!!!!! and we were giving people toys we found on the beach if they took the Flossie And The Beach Cleaners pledge which was embarrassing but at the same time perfect and funny!
We also had bandanas for dogs and water bottles that you had to make a donation to the charity to get one because the water bottles really are awesome they look like cans but they’re not!
My Mum and I did a quick beach clean and we had two boys who manged to get some rubbish that was was floating in the sea for us so we told them that they were plimming!
When we went on our group beach clean I didn’t feel very well but I got on with it and I had some amazing helpers who did really well and we found alot! It was a odd beach clean because the beach looked really clean but if you really got into it you could see the difference!
Then a couple of days later my Mum went down to find it actually was spotless!!! which was really good for now, but we know because of the weather within a week all the rubbish will wash back on the shore again!! We have been cleaning this beach for so long we are glad it looks great at the moment, it means we are making a difference!As you all know I have started secondary school so it is a lot harder to strike on Fridays but the vice principal has agreed to let me strike outside the school which is so great so my friends are striking with me!
Also this week I made a video for the run up to the 20th when the next big strike is happening!!!!! I had loads of people help make his video including my adorable cat! and cousins who burped!!!!
I am pretty sure that thats the first cat to strike!
Here is a really good video to help you pack for your holidays and cut right down on how much plastic you take with you!!!
Hope you liked this weeks blog sorry it is so late and there isn’t a story, but I am about to run off to do another beach clean! Bbbbbbbbbbbbbyyyyyyyyyyyeeeeeeee!!!!!!!
