4 March 2012 is another environmental awareness day, with the Clean Up Australia Day initiative once again being run. You can either participate in an already arranged Clean Up Australia Day site (which you can find on their website) or set up your own site.
What is involved?
Take a pair of gloves and clean up a nominated site of its rubbish for as long as the allocated site is "open" or as long as you have to offer.
Some of the more unusual sites have been dive locations, beaches and rivers. This year sites really could be anywhere! Just as far as your imagination can stretch and as far as willing volunteers will go.
If you want to set up a site, it is important to register your site asap, as the Clean Up Australia Day organising committee requires about 2 weeks prior to the day to send out bags and supporting information to you.
Go on, give it a go. Originally I was going to create a clean up site on my street, but unfortunately I don't think I would get many volunteers and my street really isn't a rubbish hot spot. So, as an alternative, I'm thinking of going along to my local site, which I found on the official website.
