CleanUp Australia Day 2023

The 2023 Clean Up Australia Day campaign is calling on us to Step Up To Clean Up our beautiful country.
2023 will be the 33rd year Girl Guides have collaborated with Clean Up Australia, participating as a proud Youth Community Ally.

You can get ready for #CleanUpAustraliaDay2023 by

Registering your Unit here
joining an existing Clean Up nearby!

Registering a Clean Up is a great way to inspire your local Girl Guides group to learn about the impact of rubbish on their local environment, while playing an active role in their community and learning how to make a difference through simple actions to conserve our environment.

When: Sunday 5 March or whatever date works for your Unit/s
Who: Everybody!
Where: Anywhere! Perhaps a local park, bushland, beach or suitable community streets/neighborhood areas

All registered Clean Ups will receive a free Clean Up Kit – including bags, gloves, and paperwork to help you succeed on the day.
Register by February 17 (or 2 weeks before your planned event) to allow time for your kit to arrive.

Looking to incorporate some more relevant content into some of your weekly Guide meetings? They have some terrific resources on their website, check them out!!!

As mentioned on the website, ‘Everyone who registers to participate in Clean Up Australia Day activities can join in. One person per Clean Up event will be asked to input data.You can log your collection tally online at the conclusion of your event, but you will need to know your Clean Up Australia site number* – this is required to verify your involvement and ensure statistical integrity for this project.’

By participating in the #StepUpToCleanUp campaign, CleanUp Australia urges you to submit a photo of yourself/your Guides (with photo permission) with a written note, responding to the pledge of what you will do this year to Step Up To Clean Up!
