CLEAN   UP  AUSTRALIA  DAY - 1st Weekend of March


Clean Up Australia Day is a not-for-profit Australian environmental conservation organisation. Since 1989, this annual event has been held during the 1st week of March. Without the dedication from  volunteers, parks, waterways, nature reserves, and bushland across Australia would not be in the condition they are today.

In 2021 Australians generated close to 67 million tonnes of waste! This significantly impacts our beautiful beaches and national parks. The same appealing sights and attractions we want to visit in pristine conditions!

On the first Sunday of March, WFWP Australia volunteers come together in a suburban location and donate their time to 'step up and clean up' to collect garbage, preventing further litter washout into local waterways.

The purpose of the U.N. World Oceans Day is to inform the public of the impact of human actions on the ocean, develop a worldwide movement of citizens for the ocean, and mobilize and unite the world’s population on a project for the sustainable management of the world's oceans.

The concept of a 'World Oceans Day' was first proposed in 1992 at the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro as a way to celebrate our world’s shared ocean and our personal connection to the sea, as well as to raise awareness about the crucial role the ocean plays in our lives and the important ways people can help protect it.


The most common garbage found on beaches include cigarette butts, food wrappers, plastic straws, plastic bottle caps, and plastic beverage bottles. Plastics are especially harmful as they are non-biodegradable. The weather and UV Rays makes these plastics break down into tiny balls, which then get infiltrated into the environment, become part of the sand on beaches and are ingested by marine animals.

Volunteer with WFWP Australia as we team up with Beach Patrol by adopting a beach to clean up and help protect our beautiful coastline and aquatic environments.
