Australia Day is where businesses, communities and governments bond together to address the issues revolving around pollution in the environment. The day focuses on having individuals come together for a greater good, giving responsibility to both the individual to do small things such as pick up litter and a united community to tackle greater tasks such as removing rubbish from water ways.
Clean Up Australia Day can include anything from cleaning up waste in your street or to planting trees in your community garden. Predominately the idea of the day is for action to be taken against human destruction of the environment, this is why the day has expanded; branching out to Business Clean Up Day, Schools Clean Up Day and even Clean up The World.
Clean up the World day aimed to take Australia’s pride in environmental conservation and expand it worldwide, which is exactly what happened.
In 2014 the total number of estimated volunteers for Clean Up Australia Day was 572, 406. Which proves that Australians take the day very seriously and choose to work together as a whole for the benefit of not only the country but the world. Helping to preserve, conserve and protect the environment.
