Clean Up Australia Day is one of the nation's best known environmental events and for good reason. In the first 23 years of their event they collected 275000 tonnes of rubbish and in 2011 16500 tonnes of rubbish were collected. In the past 20 years Australians have volunteered over 24 million hours in this event. Clean Up Australia Day was started in 1989 by Ian Kiernan who wanted to reduce the amount of plastic in Sydney Harbour. Now thousands of Australians are joining in on this day and are cleaning up our country. I encourage you to be part of this very important event on this Sunday the 4th of March.
