|Clean Up Australia|
Clean Up Australia Day began in 1989 when Ian Kiernan, a yachtsman and builder, organised a community event to Clean Up Sydney Harbour. Ian was inspired to take action after witnessing the state of pollution and rubbish in the world's oceans after he went on a solo sailing adventure.
What began with a community event has now turned into a national event, in which Australians have collected over 200,000 tonnes of rubbish in the past twenty years.
