A mobile “pod” highlighting the troubles caused by polluting the ocean with plastic will move into North Wollongong Beach from Saturday. 

The drop-in multimedia attraction – mounted on a trailer – will open to the public from 10am to 6pm, Thursday to Sunday, until March 28. 

The museum-style interactive displays are the work of the Total Environment Centre and the Boomerang Alliance, which advocates for the banning of single-use plastic bags and microbeads. 

Wollongong Lord Mayor Gordon Bradbery will unveil the Ocean Action Pod on Saturday at 11am, ahead of a four-hour Seaside Scavenge, where rubbish collected from the beach can be traded in for second-hand goods including pre-loved clothing.
