This morning I joined Gecko and other volunteers to participate in Clean Up Australia Day at Currumbin Creek. It was great to see people getting outdoors and cleaning up. As you can see in the photo together we collected bags upon bags of rubbish which would have made its way into the creek and ocean. The most common item I found was cigarette butts followed by styrofoam. But I also found fishing line, bottles, plastic bags, bottle caps, lolly wrappers, straws, cans, chocolate wrappers, lolly pop sticks, shattered glass, a paint brush and even $5!
It was great to talk to channel 7 and 9 news about Clean Up Australia Day and what people can do to help reduce waste in our environment.
Clean Up Austraila Day only happens once a year but we can still make a difference every other day by doing simple small actions that all add up.
Here are three easy tips for people to help stop littering:
