Clean Up Australia inspires and empowers communities to step up and clean, fix up and conserve their local environ­ment. While the official Clean Up Australia Day is Sunday 5 March 2023, you can Clean Up Australia any day of the year. This year they are encourag­ing community groups and businesses to get on board to organise a local clean up. This initiative began as the inspira­tion of one man, Ian Kiernan, AO. An avid sailor, Ian was shocked and disgusted by the pollution and rubbish that he continually encountered in the oceans of the world. What was started over thirty years ago, by an “average Australian” who had a simple idea to make a difference in his own backyard has now become the nation’s largest community-based envi­ronmental event.

More than 20 million Aussies have participated in Clean Up Australia activities and events over the past three decades. Because many hands make light work, why not assem­ble a team to volunteer for a day to tidy up the neigh­borhood? This is a great way for residents, businesses and community groups to make a positive impact while working together and enjoying the great outdoors. More information, including how to register or join a Clean Up, can be found on www.cleanup.org.au/create.
