An important message from Didirri Dreaming, we must pay attention before its too late. I know I would rather walk on a pristine beach, city streets and unspoilt countryside where wildlife can thrive, wouldn’t you?


All over the world we are being submerged in an ocean of plastic waste. Disposable plastic is sprinkled around our streets and parks, washes down our gutters into rivers and the ocean, washes up on our beaches, destroys environments and kills wildlife.
