For Schools

Litter: Prevent the Spread

In hopes to reduce litter and to raise awareness of the problem, Keep Australia Beautiful Week 2020 will engage Aussies with their community and encourage everyone to take action against litter.

The unprecedented events of 2020 mean that we are 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 are 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
