Make a difference on World Cleanup Day

September marks the start of Spring, but also World Cleanup Day, a chance to show you about the environment.

World Cleanup Day, held on September 15, will see volunteers and partners worldwide will come together to rid the planet of trash – cleaning up litter and mismanaged waste from our beaches, rivers, forests, and streets.

The movement was born 10 years ago in Estonia, when 4% of the population came out to clean the entire country of illegally dumped waste, in a matter of hours. This act inspired millions worldwide, who soon decided to follow suite.

In South Africa, the Shoprite group, in partnership with the volunteerism organisation, Brownie Points, have shown their support for cleanup initiatives.

Shoprite have developed a digital platform, called Act For Change where anyone can organise or join an existing cleanup. You can visit the site by clicking HERE.

You can also visit the official World Cleanup Day site, for more information about the day and what you can do.

Will you be doing anything for World Cleanup Day? Which areas do you think need most to be cleaned up?

Let us know on our Facebook page or via Twitter using the hashtag #WorldCleanupDay.
