Put your gloves on for Clean Up Australia Day

New Year resolutions have been made and broken as we move to the end of February, but there is one feel-good activity that we can do for ourselves and our home that will somewhat balance the books. Get out and about this week and clean up your business, your school, your park or your beach, because it is Clean Up Australia week once again.

It all started in Sydney in 1989 and since then, Clean Up Australia Day has become an annual event involving millions of ordinary Australians and in 1993 it became a global program through the United Nations in some 80 countries. Show that you are willing to do something to help care for the planet.

Finally, our state is making the right noises about banning plastic bags and sniffing around the edges of making beverage bottles recyclable.But it is our local youngsters who are putting dreams into action and becoming our sustainability leaders.Tim Silverwood whose personal decision to clean plastic from his favourite surfing beaches and inspire others to do the same has become internationally famous. In 2012 Nick Morris, having just graduated from University of Newcastle, saw a business opportunity in restaurant waste and established his thriving business Thegreenhelpinghand, to make local businesses more sustainable.

Join the Clean Up crew on Sunday, March 6, put your gloves on and fill that garbage bag. Last year about 530,000 people removed almost 16,000 tonnes of rubbish at more than 7000 sites across Australia. You can find how and where and what easily on the web. If you have some spare dollars then donate to Clean Up Australia to help this wonderful organisation grow.
