Clean Up Australia Day 2020
SUNDAY 1 MARCH 2020
STEP UP TO CLEAN UP THIS MARCH
This March marks the 30-year anniversary for Clean Up Australia Day. Since it began, 17.7 million Australians have donated their time as part of Clean Up Australia Day activities. That equates to 35 million hours of volunteer time, removing more than 365,000 ute loads of rubbish from our environment.
It is hard to believe that this initiative began as the inspiration of one man, Ian Kiernan. An avid sailor, Ian was shocked and disgusted by the pollution and rubbish that he continually encountered in the oceans of the world. Taking matters into his own hands, Ian organised a community event with the support of a committee of friends. This simple idea ignited an enthusiasm and desire among the local community to get involved and make a difference.
Thirty years on, Clean Up Australia Day is an important as ever and we're inviting all Australians to join a local Clean Up activity in their local area make a real difference for the environment. And while the Clean Up is important, today our focus needs to be as much on preventing rubbish entering our environment as it is removing what has already accumulated. This year, we're also inviting Australians to think about how they can Step Up to make a positive change for the environment, whether that's using reusable coffee cups or refusing excess packaging, everyone can make a small change for a big impact to our environment.
