A land with vast resources deserves some care
Australia is a beautiful luscious country, even amongst urban areas; the amount of greenery, wetlands and natural landscapes is immense compared to other countries.

As inhabitants of this ancient land, it is our responsibility to keep it clean. We can all show appreciation to mother nature and respect to its native people by sustaining ethical lifestyles and promoting environmentally friendly practices to protect local flora and fauna.

Clean Up Australia was founded back in 1989 by a couple of "average blokes" who realised the need to clean up Sydney Harbour. Their campaign received a huge response from approximately 40,000 locals who enthusiastically offered their services to keep the area clean.

Since then, "Clean Up Australia" has grown to a national level and even gained support from the United Nations Environment Programme to launch "Clean Up the World".

So how can you be part of this movement?

You can easily join a clean up site online. Spread the word around and sign up as a group of friends with work colleagues or as a business. If you see the need for an area to be cleaned, you can also register the site and encourage others to join in and cooperate together to keep natural landscapes clean.

If you are time poor or perhaps can't make it to the clean up sessions, you can also donate money to contribute to this great cause. Click here to join or donate
