Cundall joins in for Clean Up Australia Day 2016 Share this article

Tuesday 1 March was Clean Up Australia Day for businesses and in support, all four of Cundall's Australian offices raised their rubbish bags and volunteered to pick up litter at selected sites.

Clean Up Australia Day was established over 25 years ago to clean up Sydney Harbour with help from volunteering Sydneysiders. The aim of the founder was: "to inspire and work with communities to clean up, fix up and conserve our environment". The sheer amount of volunteers that came out on the first occasion led to the event going nationwide the following year, and so began the annual Clean Up Australia Day.

As part of Cundall's ongoing commitment to One Planet Living, all of the Australian offices (Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth) registered for this event. Cundall staff volunteered their afternoons to help clean up areas around their cities, removing rubbish from the environment and ensuring recyclables didn't turn into landfill.

The sun was out at all four of the clean-up sites, and rubbish bags were filled to the brim. Whilst finding all that rubbish was slightly disheartening, proving that our environments are victim to pollution, seeing the rubbish removed put a smile on everyone's faces by the end of the day.

Not only did everyone come out to help clean up the environment, the Australian offices also started chipping away at reaching 40,000 hours of volunteering. With all the volunteers that came out, the Australian offices cracked well over 50 hours of volunteering. 

With the national Clean Up Australia Day approaching, Australian offices can keep contributing to their volunteering hours by joining the event on March 6! With an array of options, helping out is simple. By heading to the website, http://www.cleanupaustraliaday.org.au, you can get a group of people together and register a site, join an existing site, or donate. All options are helping to conserve our environment and no doubt, there will be some Cundall members out on Sunday to continue the great work from Tuesday and help reach Cundall’s 40,000 hours of volunteering!
