In Australia we have a waste problem. Our beaches, our forests and our bushland are falling victim to our inability to responsibly deal with rubbish. This weekend, we are campaigning for a cleaner Australia. Join thousands of other Aussies in cleaning up our beautiful world – then keep up the habit throughout the year. Beat the Bottle and Clean Up Australia Day are kicking off this Sunday 4th of March, will you be there?

Every plastic bag we use and fast-food container we’re given has to go somewhere, and plastic can take up to 1,000 years to decompose. This means that the rubbish we create today will still be hanging around in 30 generations time.

Each minute, about 15,000 bottles and cans are sent to landfill or littered here in Australia (that’s 21 million in a day!) For a population of 24 million, that’s pretty bad.

Our oceans in particular are struggling:


So what can we do about it?
