Litter: Prevent the Spread

Keep Australia Beautiful Week is held late August each year to raise awareness about the simple things we can all do in our daily lives to reduce our impact on the environment and encourage action.

The unprecedented events of 2020 means we’re taking a different approach to Keep Australia Beautiful Week this year.

Protecting ourselves from the spread of COVID-19 has led to drastic changes to the way we live – from staying at home more to increasing our hygiene practices. 

However, there are some unintended consequences of this new lifestyle, especially when it comes to the waste we’re producing. 

Items like single-use food and beverage containers, face masks, hand sanitizer and gloves are in high demand. All with the potential to end up as litter in our beautiful country.

The good news is, we believe we can all work towards a litter-free Australia from the comfort of our homes with some simple tips to prevent rubbish ending up in the environment.

How to participate

Keep Australia Beautiful Week 2020 will focus on the three main ways we can reduce and recycle some of the goods we’re using more of these days:

  1. How to protect you and your loved ones without the cost to our planet

  2. How to keep good hygiene practices that don’t cost the Earth

  3. How to reduce and recycle the single-use consumables from takeaway food and drinks
