Registrations are officially open for Clean Up Australia Day 2023.
Pip Kiernan, Chair of Clean Up Australia says “Our environment is facing pressure unlike ever before. As all Australians know, over the past two years, we’ve seen severe bushfires, cyclones and floods, and increased pressures on our biodiversity and an ever-growing volume of waste which leaks into our natural and marine environment.”
“Australians tell us every day that they are concerned about the world we live in but often feel frustrated and unsure how to make a positive impact. Clean Up Australia Day is a great opportunity to work together and take practical action. We seek the support of all Australians. Together we can all make a real difference,” Pip said.
Registration is free, and participants receive a free Clean Up kit, containing gloves and bags and other resources, with packs for individuals, families and community groups available.
Businesses are asked to pay a fee to cover costs.
Anyone who signs up before December 31, is automatically in the running to win one of three Coles gift cards valued at $1000.
“Signing up now means you’re making a pledge to improve and protect Australia’s environment. Whether you are 9 or 90, participating in a Clean Up Australia event changes the way you think about your everyday habits and the practical changes each of us can make. Everyone who gets involved tells us how rewarding the day is and how it has made a lasting positive impact.” Pip said.
